Draper

The Champagne and Trade House, with its headquarters in Urville, was founded in 1808 and is still owned by the family of the same name. The vineyards cover 40 hectares. The cellars were already established by the Cistercians in the 12th century. For example, the brands "Carte d'Or Brut" (90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay), "Carte Blanche", "Rosé Val des Demoiselles", "Signature Blanc de Blancs" and the vintage champagne "Grande Sendrée Brut" (55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay) are produced. The French president Charles de Gaulle (1890-1970) proffered his guests champagne from Drappier at private receptions at his residence in Colombey-les-Deux-Églises (where he is buried). The vintage champagne "Cuvée Collection" (80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay) is named in his honour. The company uses the rare bottle oversizes Melchisedech (30 l), Primat (27 l) and Salomon (20 l).
