It appears that Champagne Papi is finally coming out with his own champagne as Drake has teamed up with Brent Hocking, founder of DeLeón Tequila, to introduce a line of champagne called Mod Sélection. The pair have worked together since launching the Virginia Black Whiskey brand in 2016.
The house of Mod Sélection dates back to 1892 in the Vallée de la Marne region of France but has never been sold to the general public. “Mod Sélection is the purest expression of balance and terroir produced in Champagne today,” reads the press release. “The house practices minimal intervention throughout harvest, press, and production, ensuring the purest display of balance and terroir in every cuvée. Only grapes demonstrating optimal levels of sugar, acidity, and maturity are selected for press.”
In an interview with Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, Drake said, “The product is great, the presentation is great, and hopefully the representation is great as well. We’ll enjoy this run. It should be a long one and a strong one. I think the full package is there.”
Mod Sélection will be made available in both Réserve and Rosé, priced at $300 and $400 per 750ml bottle. Check out more details over at the brand’s website.
