    Much more oxidative and saline than most of Drappier's range. Grande Sendrée proves even if Champagne can be austere and linear in its youth, the quality vintages age so well they transform into magical wines. Here the acidity continues to be well-defined, with long crisp linear citrus freshness with very ripe, full fruit - a testament to the warmth of the vintage in the South - here from a single parcel in the eastern Côte des Bar. It is worth noting that Drappier delivers stunning value-for-money, as the white is a solid €15 a bottle cheaper than the Grande Sendrée rosé - and even Drappier's Blanc de Blancs at half the price again is a solid choice.
