A magnificent champagne to serve as an aperitif, the Brut Icône is perfect alongside gougères and all sorts of savoury hors d’oeuvres. Later in the evening, it will be a fitting accompaniment to dishes such as capon in a cream sauce.
Made from twenty different Crus, the Brut Icône Cattier is produced primarily using pinot grapes. The perfect combination of power and finesse, it owes its complexity to these pinot varieties and from the older wine added to the blend. The result is a generous champagne, brimming with vitality.
