Drappier, Champagne Brut Grande Sendree, 2010

$129.99
This is a magestic blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grown in Drappier's special Kimmeridgian soils, which are not at all common in Champagne. "Sendree" is a mis-spelling of the French word for ashes, as in the 19th century a great fire resulted in the vineyard site being covered in grey.

The secret to the magic of Drappier -- the only famous House located in the Aube -- is they operate much more in the vein of a grower: they own most of their vines, farm organically and biodynamically (sometimes plowing with a horse), focus on terroir with a slew of single parcel bottlings and continue to push the quality forward with experimentation in every aspect, never settling for status quo. But being able to buy grapes also gives them the flexibility of a House, along with much greater stocks of reserve wine and a huge Cistercian cellar to store a LOT of library bottles.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 93
"The 2010 Brut Grande Sendrée has turned out very well indeed, unwinding in the glass with youthful aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, white peach and fresh bread. Medium to full-bodied, bright and concentrated, it's youthfully tightly wound, with a racy spine of acidity, an elegant pinpoint mousse and a penetrating, chalky finish. This can't quite match the plenitude of the 2009, but it may outpace it with time, as this is an impressively vibrant, structured young Grande Sendrée." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 93
"A quietly elegant Champagne, with a lovely soft, laciness to texture, and a minerally underpinning of smoke and saline accents. It displays a creamy mesh of crushed black cherry, grilled nut, kumquat and dried apricot and a refine, subtle finish."
