Very fine nose of citrus fruits, apple, almond or perhaps nutmeg. When it reaches the palate the Charles de Gaulle Cuvée exhibits a remarkable complexity, with an airy mousse and lightly candied notes
Drappier Charles de Gaulle
Michel Drappier is the seventh generation of the Drappier family. The family stretches back to the draper Rémy Drappier, who was born in 1604, but it was not until 1808 that François settled in Urville, in the south of Champagne, where Cistercian monks had settled in the 12th century. When Georges Collot, the maternal grandfather of Michel Drappier, planted his first Pinot vines in the 1930s, the neighboring winegrowers laughed at him, calling him “Father Pinot”. André and Micheline carried forward the style established by “Father Pinot” and created the prestige cuvée Carte d’Or in 1952.
