Drappier Champagne: Ancient Vineyards and Organic Winemaking


Urville’s soil contains a significant percentage of late Jurassic age limestone, highly favorable for growing Pinot Noir. 

No surprise, 70% of the Drappier vineyard comprises Pinot Noir. It’s supplemented by Pinot Meunier (15%), Chardonnay (9%), and old grape varieties (6%) like Arbanne, Petit Meslier, Blanc Vrai (Pinot Blanc), and Fromenteau (Pinot Gris).

During the blending process, the Champagne house respects the style and spirit of each grape variety. 

The vinification takes place with minimal intervention and minimal use of sulfur to give the wine a natural, deep gold or copper color and rich aromas. 

The Champagne house ages its vintages in oak casks in their limestone cellars. It also matures the wines by immersing them 30m deep into the sea, where the underwater pressure, light, and temperature age them to perfection.

Some Drappier Champagnes from the Liqueurs de dosage collection contain small quantities of liqueur to accentuate the wines’ length without making it weighty.  

These winemaking processes of the Champagne house have evolved through the centuries.

The Rich History of Maison Drappier


Urville made its first wines around 2000 years ago, but it was only in 1152 that Saint Bernard founded the Clairvaux Abbey and built cellars into the land. He imported the Morillon Noir grape variety (an ancestor of Pinot) from Burgundy and built many wine cellars, including the one in Urville.

About seven centuries later, the Drappier family established their estate around this beautifully preserved abbey.

The Drappier family tree can be traced back to Rémy Drappier, a cloth merchant in Reims in the 17th century. In 1808, one of the house’s ancestors, François, settled in Urville and began farming a vineyard.

In 1930, Georges Collot (the current owner’s grandfather) replanted the vineyards with the Pinot Noir grape variety, earning the title ‘Father Pinot.

Today, Michel Drappier manages the vinification while his daughter Charline Drappier and his sons, Hugo and Antoine, look after marketing, viticulture, and other operations.
