Demure notions of yellow apple and citrus blossoms tease the nose; then on the palate it's minerality galore with green and yellow apple fruit chiselled from a wall of marine rocks and shells. Lip-smacking, precise, citrus-y finish.

An aromatic salsa-like fusion of ripe summer fruit and fragrant Asian spices.

The crisp palate is both smooth and sweet, perfectly complemented by a noticeable, lemonish acidity. Fine balance, delicacy, and immediate drinkability.

113 SPARKLING –DRAPPIER CARTE D’ON NV

€65

The Carte d’Or cuvée is the very expression of the Drappier style. With its very high proportion of Pinot Noir, one is almost tasting a Blanc de Noirs.

A vinous Champagne of lovely complexity with a characteristic note of quince jelly.

€85

The nose brings to mind white peach and pear but also more floral notes such as peony. On the palate a mineral Champagne, lightly biscuity, creamy, supple and seductive.
