Drappier Carte d'Or Brut
|Article:||Drappier Carte d'Or Brut|
|Grape variety:||80 to 90% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier and 5 to 15% Chardonnay|
|Colour:||Rich gold, even coppery.|
|Flavour:||Bouquet of sweet briar, aromas of stoned fruits, such as the white peach of the vines. With a spicy hint.|
|Taste:||Powerful and complex. Immediately vinous, dominated by ripe fruits: peach, apricot and red fruits. The natural freshness is only lightly clothed by a discreet dosage, ensuring a finish of great length. As it continues to mature, the Carte d'Or will surprise you with notes of gingerbread, candied fruits and Viennese pastries.|
|Special:||This cuvée is the very expression of the "Drappier style": One can almost taste a Blanc de Noirs. (White wine from red grapes).|
Already in the 12th century this satellite of the abbey Clairvaux was founded by Saint Bernhard in Urville.
