    In the 1960’s, when he was not at the Elysée Palace or on an official trip, General de Gaulle stayed at his property at La Boisserie in Colombey-Les-Deux-Eglises. As a lover of the hills of Champagne which surround La Boisserie and of which he speaks in his memoirs, he liked to savor the products of this land that he loved so much. He discovered Drappier Champagne thanks to his aide-de-camp, Colonel de Bonneval, a loyal customer of the Champagne House. He chose a cuvée rich in Pinot Noir which was reissued in his honor.

    Potential of keeping

    Like all wines, champagne can be kept for varying lengths of time, depending on the type. Under optimal storage conditions, champagne can be kept for 1 to 2 years for Brut cuvées, and up to 4/5 years or even longer for vintage and prestige champagnes. Whatever happens, rest assured that you'll never be able to open your champagne too early, as the Champagne Houses only release their cuvées when they have reached perfect ripeness and are ready for immediate consumption.
