DRAPPIER

Michel Drappier

The story of the House Drappier began in 1808 when François Drappier moved to Urville to operate vineyards. The House survives the various crises that cross the Champagne and continues its development until the 1930s when Georges Collot decided to replant the Pinot Noir in the canton. The pinot noir then becomes the hallmark of the House.


Although the vines in Urville were initially planted by the Romans 2000 years ago, it was Saint Bernard, founder of Clairvaux Abbey, who had the cellars of Drappier built-in 1152.

Seven centuries later, in 1808, around this magnificently preserved testimony to medieval times, where the exceptional cuvées slumber, the family domain was created which Michel Drappier heads today. An area in which Pinot Noir thrives, a grape variety which "runs through our veins", Urville lies where the vineyard was first planted and is now cultivated according to organic and natural principles. Like the "archives" plotting the house's long history, they also continue to produce forgotten and nevertheless unforgettable grape varieties: Arbane, Petit Meslier and Blanc Vrai.

Today, rather than sophisticated, sometimes overdone excellence, they prefer authenticity and a natural approach. Thanks mainly to very low quantities of dosage and minimal use of sulphites, of which the Brut Nature Without Sulphur cuvée is the culmination, they are able to highlight the multifaceted aspects of our terroirs and our wine-making.
