Drappier "Quattuor" Brut Champagne

SKU #1279316 93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The latest release of Drappier's NV Brut Blanc de Quatre Blancs Quattuor—an unusual blend of Arbanne, Petite Meslier, Blanc Vrai and Chardonnay—opens in the glass with an attractive bouquet of honeycomb, crisp yellow orchard fruit, dried white flowers, marzipan and toasted walnuts. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and crisply fleshy, with a deep core of fruit, an elegant pinpoint mousse and tangy balancing acids, concluding with a long, nutty finish. This is a terrific rendition of this rare bottling, and it's more than a mere curio; indeed, it's well worth seeking out. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The NV Brut Blanc de Quatre Blancs Quattuor is laced with hazlenuts, almonds, orange peel and dried pears. There is an attractive, oxidative quality that mkes the the NV Quatre Blancs quite appealing. A gracious, crystalline finish adds considerable finesse and weightlessness in this expressive, layered Champagn., The wine keeps getting better and better with time in the glass, so some advance aeration is probably a good idea. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Arbane (25%), Petit Meslier (25%) and Blanc Vrai (25%) and Chardonnay (25%). Full malo. Three years on the lees. No wood. Dosage 4.2 g/l. Distinctive aroma of citrus and green apple, biting freshness in a creamy framework. Tight, zesty and with just a hint of autolytic yeastiness but mostly it's about the fruit. Fine mousse and persistent. 17/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

K&L Notes

We only recieved an 18 bottle allocation of this great Champagne rarity. It is composed of 25% Arbanne, 25% Petit Meslier, 25% Pinot Blanc and 25% Chardonnay from the Drappier estate in Urville and dosed at a very low 4.2g/l of sugar. These are grapes that are so rare in Champagne that they aren't even on the test for Champagne educators! (Gary Westby, Champagne Buyer)
