Producer: Boërl & Kroff
Previously owned by the talented trio of Michel Drappier, Stephane Sese and Patrick Sabate with Stephane Sese solely taking the reins in December 2019, Boerl & Kroff was formerly run by the De Gaulle family who produced Champagne Drappier, the verdant estate that used to provide for King Louis XVI and was the appointed tribute for Elysee Palace and a favorite of General Charles de Gaulle giving it a most respectable standing in the Champagne region.
Tasting Notes: Medium gold with greenish tinges, consistent cordon made of very tiny bubbles. Very complex nose with notes of citrus fruit, candied fruit, beeswax, and earl grey tea. Fresh and lively but with great finesse, superbly harmonious with a truly magnificent mouthfeel leading on a delicious camomile aftertaste. An intense Champagne, extremely enjoyable now and with an enormous aging potential
