Today Drappier owns fifty-five hectares of vineyard around the town of Urville, with another fifty hectares under contract in the Côte des Bar, Montagne de Reims, and Côte des Blancs. Although Pinot Noir accounts for the majority of wine produced, the style is not heavy. There is a vivacity and lightness of touch here that demonstrates great skill, since these champagnes have plenty of concentration and substance.
Sustainability pioneer and leader, Drappier is the first and only carbon neutral Champagne house, but other innovations have precited: extremely low levels of sulphur are used, and there is even a no-added-sulphur cuvée made; the liqueur d’expédition is matured for over fifteen years in oak and demi-johns; and Drappier is the only house to ferment every format, from half-bottles up to the gigantic 30-litre Melchisédech, in the bottle in which it is sold.
