Champagne Drappier – Grande Sendrée 2008 – Brut

Champagne Drappier – Grande Sendrée 2008 – Brut

The nose is fine, elegant and well-balanced. It reveals slight notes of lemon, zests and a hint of green lemon associated with hints of fresh peach as well as a discreet hint of egg cream/crème pâtissière and a subtle hint of almond. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well-built, fat and offers elegance, freshness, a good definition, suavity, gourmandise as well as a slight richness/fleshy. The effervescence is fine and elegant. In the mouth this Champagne expresses notes of fresh Granny Smith apple and slight touches of crushed nectarine associated with a hint of fresh lemon, zests as well as a discreet hint of egg cream, a discreet touche of apricot (in the background) and discreet hints of honey/pâtisseries. Good length.
