with white meats, rolled fish fillets,
Chaource cheese.

 

Brut Nature Zero Dosage: 75cl £40.00

100% Pinot Noir 

Dosage is the addition of sugared wine once the fermentation process is completed. In this case, no sugar is added, resulting in a dry Champagne. Vermilion gold in colour, the nose is of freshly pressed black grapes, red, white and citrus fruits. It has an ample palate with flesh of vineyard peach and bouquet of aromatic herbs with small spicy notes in the finish. A fine, tightly knit Champagne of
great purity.

Ideal as an aperitif. The perfect accompaniment for Jersey seafood,
sashimi or even soft goat’s cheese.

 

Demi-sec 75cl: £35.00

This Carte D’Or Demi Sec is the same as the Carte D’ Or Brut except it has an extra dosage to give the wine more sweetness and transform it to a dessert Champagne. It is gorgeous. Light yellow in color this Champagne has a great perfume with a tinge of pineapple and citrus with a faintly floral nuance. On the palate there is lovely sweet fruit with hints of peach and pineapple and a long sweet finish balanced by a tinge of citrus.

This would be a great match with any kind of light dessert especially one with tropical fruits.

 

Blanc de Blancs: £40.00

95% Chardonnay, 5% Blanc Vrai 

As its name suggests, this white Champagne is made exclusively from white grapes, in this case Chardonnay, but also with a splash of Pinot Blanc (called Blanc Vrai) added to increase its complexity and roundness. 

The nose brings to mind white peach and pear but also more floral notes such as peony. On the palate a mineral Champagne, lightly biscuity, creamy, supple, seductive. 

Ideal as an aperitif and it goes superbly well with white meats, chilled smoked salmon with citrus fruits, or tagliatelle with Jersey scallops.

 

Brut Nature Sans Soufre: 75cl £48.00

100% Pinot Noir 

This Champagne is all about purity. Sulphites are widely used in wine making for their antioxidant and antibacterial properties. They play an important role in preventing oxidization. In this Champagne, no sulphur is added, allowing the Pinot Noir to express itself in total freedom. Notwithstanding the lack of dosage, it exhibits a remarkable roundness thanks to the maturity of the fruit and the time spent in the cellars, this cuvée evokes lovely apples and Williams’ pears, with a hint of lemon and hazelnuts. On the palate it is a very dry, mineral Champagne bursting with life. It will delight enthusiasts and purists on the lookout for new taste bud sensations. Recommended for those allergic to sulphur.

Ideal as an aperitif. The perfect accompaniment for local seafood,
sashimi or even soft goat’s cheese.

 

Millésime: 75cl £50.00

60 % Pinot Noir, 40 % Chardonnay 

Millésime is the French word for “vintage” and notes the year in which the wine was produced and bottled. “Vintage” refers to the date in which grapes are harvested, undergo the vinification process to turn them into wine, and are bottled or stored for additional ageing. So this wine reflects the grapes of a particular year.

A very complex, rich nose revealing hints
of white fruits, almond and fresh ginger.
In the mouth it is lightly creamy with good tightness and a suggestion of brioche. A floral touch testifies to the high proportion of Chardonnay while the depth of the Pinot Noir is expressed in the form of red fruits and appealing bitter notes. 

Ideal as an aperitif. Perfect with grilled
fennel and lemon Jersey sea bass, risotto, seared Jersey sole and a traditional
blanquette of veal.

 

Grande Sendrée: 75cl £74.50

55 % Pinot Noir, 45 % Chardonnay 

This Champagne presents itself in a ravishing pale yellow robe with nuances of topaz. Time has used its patina to reveal the wine’s complexity. Hawthorn blends with acacia honey, beeswax and marzipan. When it is aerated, quince jelly meets raspberry jam and alternates with bergamot and warm brioche. On the palate it is invigorating, imposing and it teases the taste buds.. This harmony is extended in a delicate minerality and a lovely bitterness in which hints of mandarin orange come through.

Ideal as an exclusive aperitif. It goes perfectly with bouillon of lobster and grapefruit, poached turbot with hollandaise sauce, carpaccio of Jersey scallop, rack of lamb with foie gras, creamed Bresse fowl with truffles, Comté St Antoine at least 18 months old.

 

Rosé Saignée: 37.5cl £22.50, 75cl £40.00

92 % Pinot Noir, 8 % Chardonnay 

Drappier is one of the very few Champagne houses producing rosé by the saignée method. Saignée describes a method of rosé winemaking that involves “bleeding” off a portion of red wine juice after it’s been in contact with the skins and seeds, the resulting Champagne will be richer and more concentrated. 

This Pinot Noir rosé is very well structured, with exemplary purity of red fruits. A striking Champagne on the nose offering similar sensations on the palate. Warm and satiny, lightly spiced with balanced hints of stoned fruits. On the palate it is remarkably expressive and extremely fresh, with a subtle trace of liquorice in the finish.

Ideal as an aperitif. Perfect with antipasti, salmon en papillotte, grilled pink lamb, strawberry salad.

 

Brut Nature Rosé: 75cl: £46.00

100% Pinot Noir

A rosé produced using the saignée
method, no dosage, no filtering, the Brut Nature Rosé is a cuvée which will delight lovers of freshness, minerality and purity. With hints of rose petals, strawberries and raspberries, citrus fruits, mandarin orange and also white pepper, the Brut Nature Rosé unveils another facet of rosé Champagne.

Ideal as an aperitif. It goes perfectly with salmon carpaccio or local Jersey scallops, sushi and grilled meats.

 

Grande Sendrée Rosé: 75cl: £95.00

With 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay

This Champagne combines the strength of Pinot Noir and the elegant discretion of Chardonnay. This bled rosé is made with unfiltered Chardonnay and benefits from wood matured dosage. The bouquet is outstanding, offering up a superb synthesis of delicacy and complexity in its constellation of wild strawberries, white cherries, wheat toast, dried rose petals, a lovely base of chalky soil and gentle smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a fine core, elegant mousse, brisk acids and excellent focus and grip on the very, very long and youthfully zesty finish. A very refined Champagne that will only improve with further bottle age.

Ideal as an exclusive aperitif. To accompany saffron creamed Jersey mussels, Jersey lobster salad, lamb shank or Jersey monkfish and of course red berried fruits such as strawberries.
