Drappier Brut Rose 6/750
100% Pinot Noir
Brut Rosé in a nutshell…
Finesse and depth of the Pinot Noir
The Drappier vineyard covers 100 hectares and constitutes the House’s essential trump card. Since 1808 our family has used its skill to select parcels of land which are particularly well exposed and extremely rich in limestone. For the most part they are located around Urville, where the Pinot Noir, in the majority, finds its loveliest expression and allows the production of very elegant, aromatic wines.
Vinification of the Brut Rosé cuvée: Rosé made using the saignée method with maceration in vats lasting 3 days | Use of gravity to avoid pumping, thus avoiding oxidation | Natural settling | Alcoholic fermentation for roughly 2 weeks at low temperature
Then total and natural malolactic fermentation | No filtering | Minimal use of sulfur | Assemblage – 100% of the wines are made in vats in order to preserve as much freshness as possible | After bottling the cuvée is aged for 2 to 3 years sur lattes (on laths) | Dosage: 7.5 g/l
Very well structured, with exemplary purity of red fruits. A striking Champagne on
the nose offering similar sensations on the palate. Warm and satiny, lightly spiced
with balanced hints of stoned fruits thanks to a lovely freshness in the finish.
Ideal as an aperitif. Perfect with antipasti, salmon en papillotte, grilled pink lamb,
