2010 Drappier ‘Grande Sendrée’ Rose Champagne
Winemaker Notes: The Grande Sendrée takes its name from a parcel of land covered in cinders (cendrée) after the fire which ravaged Urville in 1838. A spelling error having slipped into a new version of the land register, today Sendrée is written with “s”, not “c”. On very light soils made up of “crayot”, the Pinot Noir brings its power and vinosity in a very subtle manner. A splash of Chardonnay gives great elegance to the whole.
• Complex nose opening onto notes of strawberry, raspberry and violets with toasted nuances.
• Round, supple, with a rather lively spinal column tightening the entity, the palate recalls red fruits; it is fresh and complex at the same time.
• A rich Champagne with great persistence.
Wine Spectator - “Expressive notes of steeped raspberry and cherry fruit pull you into the glass of this vivacious rosé Champagne, riding the satiny mousse and layered with accents of mandarin orange peel, dried thyme and biscuit. A vinous version, with the finely knit flavors underscored by a streak of tangy mineral that drives through the spiced finish. Drink now through 2030. 100 cases imported.”
