Drappier Charles de Gaulle Brut


Non-Vintage Sparkling Wine from Champagne, France

Winemaker Notes

In the 1960s, when he was not at the Elysée Palace or on official business elsewhere, General de Gaulle would reside at his property, the Boiserie in Colombey-les-Deux-Églises, situated afew miles from Urville. There he discovered Champagne Drappier and chose a cuvée rich in Pinot Noir (80%) which was renamed in homage to him.

Wine Advocate – 92 Points

The latest release of the NV Brut Charles de Gaulle was disgorged in December 2018 with seven and a half grams per liter dosage, and the wine is showing very well, bursting from the glass with a generous bouquet of golden orchard fruits, warm biscuits, honeycomb and peach. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, rich and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit and nicely integrated dosage that lends the wine an old-fashioned, gourmand profile that’s appropriate enough given its namesake. I’d expect this to pick up considerable toasty complexity with additional aging on cork.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with pheasant stuffed with foie gras and mixed green salad with strips of guinea fowl.
