Soneva FushiSoneva JaniWineWine Tasting
Charline Drappier, the owner of Champagne Drappier, will take our guests at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani on a virtual wine journey on January 28, 2022, to showcase the house’s exquisite Champagnes alongside our expert sommeliers.
The Gallo-Romans planted the first vine in Urville around 2,000 years ago, but it wasn’t until 1152 that Saint Bernard, founder of the Clairvaux Abbey, had their cellars built into the land. Seven centuries later (in 1808), the Drappier family estate was established around the magnificently preserved medieval Abbey. Today, it is managed by Michel Drappier and is used to store and age the exceptional wines he produces.
Their vineyard was planted in Urville, the terroir that welcomed the Pinot Noir grape variety that now runs in their veins and is managed according to organic and natural practices.
They grow heirloom grape varieties that deserve to be remembered: Fromenteau, Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Blanc Vrai. While many seek to achieve sophisticated excellence, Drappier prefers natural and authentic qualities. They also highlight the many facets of the terroirs through their vinification techniques: low sugar dosage and moderate use of sulfites – especially in the production of Drappier Brut Nature Sans Soufre.
