Drappier vineyard represents 100 hectares of exceptional terroir that combines the limestone richness of the soil and optimum amount of sunshine. Carte d'Or cuvée is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay, and 10% Pinot Meunier. 5% was aged in wooden tun for a year. Carte d'or of Champagne House Drappier is almost a Blanc de Noirs. One can detect a good aromatic richness dominated by notes of stone fruit, such as white peach, enhanced by a spicy hint. The taste is powerful and complex for a vinous Champagne characterized by its quince jelly accent. It is the perfect expression of Drappier identity.

Parker : 90 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The latest release of the NV Carte d'Or Brut was disgorged in November 2017, and it's showing well today, wafting from the glass with notions of waxy lemon rind, hazelnuts, fresh peaches and lily pollen. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, pure and vibrant, with pinpoint bubbles, brisk acids and good length and definition on the chalky finish. Attractively balanced, it will gain depth with bottle age.
