2010 Drappier "Grande Sendrée" Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1402190 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2010 Champagne Grande Sendrée Rosé is 20% Chardonnay and 80% saignée method Pinot Noir that spent ten years on the lees. Pale salmon-hued with a hint of copper, the nose is elegant and fresh, with ripe stone fruit, apricot, peach, strawberry, and fresh flowers. The palate is dry and structured, with citrus pith and grapefruit, and its tannic grip makes this a gastronomic style to have at the table. (AF) Inner quote mark (11/2022)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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.

93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Disgorged in April 2018 with six grams per liter dosage, the Pinot Noir-dominated 2010 Brut Rosé Grande Sendrée is showing very well, offering up an attractive bouquet of raspberries, wild plums, rhubarb and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, vinous and tightly wound, with racy acids, a concentrated core of fruit and a sapid finish. This is a very serious Champagne that's still playing its cards close to its vest, and it will amply repay five or six years patience, even if it can be pleasurably broached sooner. (WK) 93+ Inner quote mark (4/2020)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This shows an impressive ripeness and depth for the vintage, with a bold presence of plummy red fruit on both the nose and palate. Creamy round texture supported by dry red grapes and earthy notes and bit of spices are making the wine very enjoyable. (Panel Tasting) Inner quote mark (10/2022)

K&L Notes

According to the winery, "the Grande Sendrée Cuvée takes its name from a parcel of land covered by cinders after the fire which ravaged Urville in 1838. A spelling error having slipped through in a new version of the land register, it is with an “s” that this cuvée is designated today. A reproduction of an 18th century bottle found in the Urville cellars is used and the Grande Sendrée undergoes remuage entirely by hand."
