    Description

    Quattuor Blanc de Blancs by Drappier is the most singular of champagnes as it is created from ancient white grape varieties (Arbane, Petit Meslier, Pinot Blanc) and Chardonnay.

    Its notes of fresh citrus, white flowers and green tea make it the perfect aperitif champagne.

    Most probably descended from the very first vines brought to France by the Romans, Arbane exists only in Champagne and more particularly in the Côte des Bar, in the commune of Bar sur Aube. It produces dry, extremely aromatic wines of great nervosity, perfect for effervescents.

    Petit Meslier, like Arbane, had practically disappeared after the phylloxera epidemic. The few hundred very low yielding plants that have survived produce a splendidly fruity, flinty wine.

    Pinot Blanc is a fragile variety producing supple, highly drinkable wines.

    And finally Chardonnay, widely used in Champagne today, gives noble wines with great finesse, elegance and aromatic persistence.

    Drappier Quattuor Blanc de Blancs harmoniously combines these four varieties in equal parts, resulting in a truly outstanding champagne.

    It is a cuvee of pale gold with hints of green.

    The nose is particularly fresh and fine, with fresh citrus, white flowers and green tea aromas.

    More mineral and spicy notes dominate on the extraordinarily full and gossamer-like palate.

    A champagne for aperitif which is equally good with seafood and light fish dishes.
