K&L Notes

Champagne Drappier is THE high quality negociant in the Aube, but has struggled to find good representation in the USA. Drappier was founded in 1808 in Urville, in the center of the Aube department. It was Drappier that brought Pinot Noir to the Aube in the 1930's, a move that was mocked at the time—now it is by far the most planted grape in the region. A little more than half of the production is comes from their over 130 acres of estate vineyard. The other part comes from long term contracts. The wines go through malolactic, with very little sulfur, they claim to have the lowest sulfur counts of any major negociant. Like Billecart-Salmon, they pride themselves on low temperature fermentation. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer) 100% Pinot Noir and 7.5 g/l dosage. Unfiltered. (Scott Beckerley-San Francisco).

    This absolutely 100% tasty Brut Rose is 100% pinot noir. It is dosed at a low 7 grams per liter dosage with 2-3 years on the lees. It has ripe strawberry fruit with hints of tart cranberries and red fruits. Lush, yet dry and extremely delicious!

    This all Pinot Noir Champagne is made with a three day long maceration, rather than more common method of adding red wine for color and flavor. It is vinified in only stainless steel vats and moved by gravity to avoid oxygen and preserve freshness, and dosed at a fairly low 7g/l. This Champagne has a wild nose with plenty of black cherry Pinot authority and savor. In the mouth it is spicy, extroverted and fresh.
