Celebrated the last day of my old Job and the beginning of a new adventure with a delish bottle of bubbly and some close friends. I usually subscribe to more Blanc de Blanc styles of champagne, but this Blanc de Noirs is killin it. Brut nature, old school champagne house and it shows - beautiful autolysis bready yeasty aromas with a gorgeous baked caramel apple thing going on on the palate. Love this sexy beast.

This stunning wine is a Blanc de noir and while it does not actually say rosé on the label it does have a slight blush - not the red tone you'd expect from a saignée wine but the same burnished gold richness that typifies Krug rosé. This is as richly flavored and well-balanced a Champagne as I've had in a long time. Great depth of Apple and brioche and such richness that despite the stunning freshness you'd swear it had a solid dosage. But all that richness comes from fruit ripeness, a Drappier hallmark. Beautiful on its own or with food

Ahi cruda on local cucumber and this all Pinot clean machine is about as good as it gets on a hot day.

Thank you @Charline Drappier for bringing this lovely bottle to dinner! Rich Pinot aroma & flavors, precise un-sugared finish. A great aperitif!

Light-bodied but not shy on flavor intensity; dry and refreshing but lacks depth and true complexity. Great Q/P ratio, though.
