Drappier Signature Blanc de Blancs Champagne NV $44

This is a serious Champagne, not-so seriously priced. It’s dry, complex and shows surprising character. There’s a touch of appley aldehyde and some bready cracked-yeast notes, and it’s nutty and toasty with some lemon and crumbled-biscuit characters. The taste is intense and powerful with a cleansing dryness and long aftertaste. Drink now. 12 per cent alcohol. 93/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: cheese goujeres

Stockists: Vintage Cellars stores
