Description

Founded in 1808, the Drappier Champagne House, located in Urville in the Côte des Bar, is known for its powerful wines with a strong character, housed in exceptional bottles. The family Champagne House is also known for the appellation of its grand cuvée, the Cuvée Grande Sendrée.

Drappier Grande Sendrée 2012 takes its name from a plot covered in cinders after the fire that ravaged Urville in 1838.

Today, an “S” distinguishes this cuvée in memory of a spelling mistake that crept into the label at the time of printing: “sendrée” became “cendrée”.

 

Tasting Notes

A golden colour with amber hues.

La Grande Sendrée subtly unfolds aromas of dried fruit, a few hints of toast and beeswax, opening up to fruity notes of citrus, white flesh and stone fruit.

The palate favours vinosity, depth and structure.

Food pairings

Ideal as an aperitif. Perfect with crayfish with grapefruit, scallop carpaccio, truffled Bresse poultry with cream.

Ideal serving temperature : Serve at 7°C.

Technical sheet

Blend : 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay, this perfectly balanced prestige champagne favours power and high expression.

Vinification : Exclusively vinified in the great years, Grande Sendrée represents all the know-how of the House of Champagne Drappier for the elaboration of a great wine of Champagne. The oldest vines from the best plots are harvested with particular care. After a soft pressing which extracts only the heart of the cuvée, a vinification by gravity with very little pumping and little sulphur, will give wines of a remarkable finesse.

Ageing potential : Ideal to be enjoyed now, the Grande Sendrée 2012 can also be cellared for a few more years.

Characteristics : Its shape is a reproduction of an 18th century bottle found in the cellars of Urville, Grande Sendrée is entirely stirred by hand. Since the 1999 vintage, it has been available in bottle.
