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.
