A rich, smoky Champagne, exhibiting toast, brioche and roast chestnut character that mixes with flavors of quince paste, crystallized honey and candied orange peel. Fine-grained, with a long, nut-tinged finish. (AN)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Brut Carte d’Or is a very pretty, entry-level wine graced with expressive dried pears, apricots, flowers and mint. Delicate and polished throughout, the Carte d’Or should drink nicely for the next few years. Fresh, floral notes add lift on the finish. (AG)
From the tiny village of Urville, in the middle of the Aube department. The Drappier family has been growing grapes in the Aube since 1808, and theirs is the most influential and important house in this large sub-region of Champagne. Our team tasted this wine blind in a lineup of potential candidates for K&L purchase. This cuvée won out handily against its competition. This Champagne is 75% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay and 5% Meunier and is aged on the lees for over three years in the family's 12th-century cellars in Urville. This has the dark fruit power that one would expect from such a large percentage of Pinot Noir, but it was its elegant texture and effortless, detailed finish that made it shine above all the rest in our blind tasting. An ideal apéritif Champagne.
