The Carte d'Or cuvée is the very expression of the Drappier style. With its very high proportion of Pinot Noir, one is almost tasting a Blanc de Noirs. Champagne with a fine aromatic richness, it opens with aromas of stoned fruits such as white vineyard peach. A spicy hint announces a powerful complex palate. A vinous Champagne of lovely complexity with a characteristic note of quince jelly.
Ideal as an apertif. At the table, it goes with white meats, rolled fish fillets, Chaource cheese.
Blend: 75% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay, 10% Meunier
