The Drappier Carte dOr expresses all the aromas of the noble grape variety Pinot Noir. This in fact constitutes at least 80% of the blend. A red grape producing white juice, it is sought after not only for its structure but also for its very characteristic fine notes of red fruits.

Reviews:

"Fresh and pure, offering floral, yellow fruit and mineral flavors, this bubbly is graceful and beautifully integrated. The texture is firm and refined, with a subtle nutty note on the finish. Drink now. 75,000 cases made. BS" -Rated 90, Wine Spectator

"The NV Brut Carte dOr, 80% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay and 5% Meunier, is a delicious entry-level wine with excellent depth and definition. The broad shoulders of the Pinot come through in the wines rich, expansive core of red fruits and long, creamy finish. Disgorged: October, 2009 Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014. " -Rated 88, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Bright gold. Fresh apple and pear aromas are brightened by a note of lemon zest. Fleshy and smooth on entry, then firmer in the middle, offering juicy orange and lemon curd flavors and a bitter suggestion of pear skin. Finishes dry, with firm grip and slight bitterness.
