“Inspired from Clairvaux, the Cistercian purity in a generous nature.” The Clarevallis cuvée, a certified organic champagne, is made from organically grown grapes on the Urville hillside, which was already planted in the Cistercian era. Clarevallis is the expression of the landscape and the land that man has nurtured since the 12th century.
A golden grey colour, a very fine and persistent foam.
Notes of elderberry and violet. Chalky minerality rounded by the pulp of the Pinot.
A tension in the mouth balanced by a discreet dosage on the flavours of lovely bitters.

Characteristics : The Drappier vineyard covers 100 hectares and represents the essential asset of the Champagne House's vintages. Since 1808, the family has been able to select particularly well exposed and extremely chalky plots, mostly located around Urville, where the Pinot Noir grape finds its most beautiful expression and allows the production of very elegant aromatic wines.
