Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Had this NV about three years ago and tried their new batch. The Carte d'Or cuvée has a very high proportion of Pinot Noir, which is “the Drappier style.” Aromas of stone fruit and spice in a light frothy mousse. On the palate peach, plum and raspberry with citrus zest and earthy spice. Nice flow of bubbles lead to a lingering finish ending with toasty notes. From my ‘16 notes very consistent house quality style. Nice!

This was the first bottle of Champagne we cracked into on Christmas 🎄 day and it was before 9am - I love my family! ‘Carte Blanche’ by Drappier is a Brut NV and sells for approximately $50. It’s your typical champagne blend; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

It’s a yellow colour on the eye with a hint of peach. On the nose it’s quite bready with hints of cherries and mushrooms. In the mouth it’s also quite savoury with soft acidity that made it approachable pre-9am.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine

Citrussy, pleasant... excellent value for money from a champagne that won't let you forget it is a wine.
