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 our 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.
While many seek to achieve sophisticated excellence, they prefer natural and authentic qualities. They also highlight the many facets of their terroirs through their vinification techniques: their low sugar dosage and moderate use of sulfites – especially in the production of Drappier Brut Nature Sans Soufre.
