Champagne Cattier

Although the Cattier family has owned their vineyards since 1763 it was in 1918 when Jean Cattier began making his own Champagnes and selling them under the family name. In 1951, they acquired the Clos du Moulin parcel, which produces one of the oldest prestige champagne wines. Champagne Cattier’s cellars are among the deepest in Champagne (30 metres), and provide ideal conditions for ageing with its low, constant temperature. Over the years successive generations of the Cattier family have dedicated their lives to building the Cattier Champagne name and the House is still an independent family enterprise.

Tasting Notes

Peach, apricot and red berry aromas are followed by crystalized citrus, orange blossom and hints of brioche. The palate is deliciously rich with cherries, exotic fruits and a touch of lemon, vanilla and honey. The mouth feel is soft and creamy, with a hint of toastiness, due to the unique Armand de Brignac dosage which is aged for one year in French oak barrels.

Food Matches

Ideal as an aperitif or pairs perfectly with seared scallops, roasted quail and fresh water fish.
