Champagne Drappier Pinot Noir Brut Nature Zéro Dosage 2017

Côte des Bar, Champagne, FranceThe Drappier family has been actively buying vineyards since 1808, giving them over 100 hectares today, including 15 certified organic. Based in the Aube, they are rightfully Pinot Noir centric, with vineyards primarily located around Urville and its kimmeridgian soils. Three generations of the family work in the winery today, and Michel was one of the first pioneers to release a Zero Dosage Champagne more than 30 years ago. They're continuing to push boundaries today, being the first to grow all 8 approved Champagne grapes, including the new hybrid Voltis. This Brut Nature is entirely Pinot Noir, into bottle without filtration, where it spent 36 months on lees. This is tight and focused, with red apple, white cherry across an expansive mid, and over a buzzy limestone underlay, finishing with crushed stones. Lots of energy and cut in this smart BdN.Tasted: 06 February 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
