The champagne and trading house with headquarters in Urville in the Département of Aube was founded in 1808 and is still owned by the family. Since 2016, Michel Drappier and his wife Sylivie have been supported by the eighth generation of the family. Charline (born 1989) is responsible for marketing and sales, her brother Hugo (born 1991) for the vines and winemaking. The cellars were already built by the Cistercians in the 12th century. The farm attaches great importance to environmental protection and sustainability. Since 2016, it has been the first estate in Champagne to be certified as carbon dioxide neutral and has been awarded the "Écoact" environmental seal. Photovoltaic systems cover 75% of the electricity needs. The vineyards cover 62 hectares, planted with Pinot Noir (70%), Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and old vines. Grapes are also supplied by contractual partners. Management is carried out according to certified organic (ecological) viticulture guidelines. The champagnes are produced with minimal use of sulphur.
The product range includes the brands Carte d'Or Brut (90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay), Brut Nature Sans Soufre (100% Pinot Noir, no sulphur, no dosage), Carte Blanche, Rosé Val des Demoiselles, Signature Blanc de Blancs and the Millésime (vintage champagne) Grande Sendrée Brut (55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay) produced. President Charles de Gaulle (1890-1970) served Drappier champagne to his guests at private receptions at his residence in Colombey-les-Deux-Églises (where he is also buried). The vintage champagne "Cuvée Collection" (80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay) is named in his honour. The bottle oversizes Melchisedech (30 l), Primat (27 l) and Salomon (20 l) are bottled.
