$89.80
Description

Brut Nature by Drappier was one of the very first undosed champagnes, that is, with no addition of sugar. It is ideal as an aperitif to sharpen the palate.

« In fact it was the champagne that we used to drink amongst ourselves in the evening after a hard day’s work in the vines or the cellar » explains Michel Drappier, « I would never have thought of commercializing it, but one day a visiting sommelier tried a bottle and loved it immediately. That’s how it all started ! »

Made uniquely from Pinot Noir, and cellared for 3 years to add maturity and suppleness, it is an intense, highly structured champagne with expressive fruit.

Brilliant in aspect, it’s lightly coppery glints are enhanced by fine and lively bubbles.

Intensely fruity on the nose, concentrated and fresh, the red fruits and vine peach aromas are joined by quince, blackcurrant and gingerbread on the palate.

With its fresh, clean finish Drappier Brut Nature is also the perfect companion for oysters.
