High praise: Famous house and grower Champagne selections

This curated selection pairs a world-famous Champagne house with grower Champagne brands. Grower Champagne refers to wines produced and bottled by the same person who grew the grapes in the Champagne region of France. This is a point of difference compared with wines produced by Champagne houses which typically blend grapes sourced from dozens of individual grape growers from across the region to ensure a consistent house style year over year. Our headlining Champagne house in this four-bottle set is Veuve Clicquot. Dominated by Pinot Noir, Veuve Clicquot’s Yellow Label non-vintage blend offers a perfect balance of structure and finesse. Regardless of their origins, all these Champagnes have earned the imprimatur of excellent press from well-regarded consumer publications. You’ll save $35.00 on this purchase compared to the regular combined retail price. The set includes:

  • 94-point Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV 750 ml
  • 94-point Drappier Clarevallis Extra Brut
  • 93-point Bruno Paillard Brut Blanc De Blanc Grand Cru 750 m
  • 92-point Pierre Paillard Extra-Brut Bouzy Grand Cru Les Parcelles XVII NV 750 ml

The genesis of Veuve Clicquot


Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin was born in Reims in 1777. In 1798 she married François Clicquot, son of the founder of the Maison Clicquot. It was because she had spent this time at his side that Madame Clicquot was able to take the reins of the family house after the untimely death of François in 1805. She invented the “table de remuage” (riddling table) to clarify Champagne and innovated the very first blend of rosé Champagne. Within just a few years she transformed her name into a brand of excellence, a name today renowned throughout the world.

 Champagne Drappier

The Drappier family tree can be traced back to the seventeenth century, when Rémy Drappier was born in 1604. Since 2016, the eighth generation of the Drappier family has joined Michel and his wife Sylvie, to work on the family business. 

The Drappier vineyard, mainly located in the village of Urville, maintains the strong identity of the Bar-sur-Aube arrondissement, characterized by the influence of Pinot Noir. Because the vineyards are all local, the family has stepped up its sustainable approach to viticulture and become certified as “organic”.

Champagne Pierre Paillard

Brothers Quentin and Antoine Paillard are 8th generation growers in the Grand Cru village Bouzy, on the southern facing slopes of the Montagne de Reims. Their family has been crafting wine for more than 200 years. In the vineyards, they are working actively to protect and invigorate the soil by using their own organic composts and by treating the vines with biodynamic inspired natural infusions.

In the cellar, minimal intervention is the rule; chaptalization, enzymes, artificial settling agents and cold stabilization are not employed in the winemaking process. The wines benefit from extended aging and certain cuvées are aged for up to 10 years before disgorgement and release. 

Maison Bruno Paillard

Maison Bruno Paillard manages a vineyard of around 30 hectares (74 acres) of land over the best Crus of Champagne:  Le Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Cumières or Verzenay, for example. Les Riceys is the exception; situated in the south of Champagne, it is the undisputed flagship of the Aube. Altogether it represents over 100 plots, each with a different terroir. Twelve hectares of the vineyards are classified as Grand Cru.
