Although the vines in Urville were originally planted by the Romans 2000 years ago, it was Saint Bernard, founder of Clairvaux Abbey, who had our cellars built in 1152.
Seven centuries later, in 1808, around this magnificently preserved testimony to medieval times, where the exceptional cuvées slumber, the family domaine was created which today is headed by Michel Drappier. An area in which Pinot Noir thrives, a grape variety which “runs through our veins”, Urville lies where our vineyard was first planted and is now cultivated according to organic and natural principles.
Just like the “archives” plotting the long history of our house, we also continue to cultivate forgotten and nevertheless unforgettable grape varieties: Arbanne, Petit Meslier, Blanc Vrai and Fromenteau.
Today, rather than sophisticated, sometimes overdone excellence, we prefer authenticity and a natural approach. Thanks mainly to very low quantities of dosage and extremely limited use of sulphites, we are able to highlight the multifaceted aspects of our terroirs and our wine-making.
In 2015, Champagne Drappier was the first domaine in Champagne to be carbon neutral (Ecoact).
