Wine Spectator Review
Granny Smith apple, toasted almond, currant and whole-grain toast flavors are fresh and well-meshed, structured by bright acidity and a lively bead. Offers a creamy finish, with hints of smoke and honeycomb. Drink now through 2018.
Drappier's Carte d'Or Brut champagne has all the aroma of the Pinot Noir quality grape variety, which in fact makes up 90% of the blend. This is a black grape with white juice and is highly prized not only for its structure but also for the subtle notes of red fruits which characterize it. A touch of Chardonnay gives freshness, while the more supple Pinot Meunier grapes impart a fine after-taste. By using only the most noble extracts go to make up this blend, for which Drappier is justly famed. "My new favorite Champagne" - Liquorama Wine Buyer
