As its name indicates, this white Champagne is made exclusively from white grapes, in point of fact from Chardonnay. Nevertheless, an original feature of the Drappier House, a splash of Pinot Blanc, called “Blanc Vrai” in Champagne, is sometimes added to the cuvée in order to increase its complexity and roundness.
This Champagne shows a brilliant straw yellow color and nuances of
golden yellow, very transparent, good effervescence, fine and persistent
perlage. The nose denotes intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas
that start with hints of banana, yeast and apple followed by aromas of
acacia, pineapple, pear, hazelnut, grapefruit, plum and praline. In the
mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a crisp and effervescent
attack, however balanced, good body, intense flavors, agreeable. The
finish is persistent with flavors of plum, pear and grapefruit. A small
percentage of Pinot Blanc is added to the cuvée.
