Served with gougères, the Brut Premier Cru makes an excellent aperitif. It also has the personality to accompany white meat dishes and bright sauces, such as guinea fowl with citrus, while remaining delicate enough to pair with fish such as sea bass or zander. The fruity notes will also work well alongside a dessert, for example a chilled rice pudding or a fruit salad.
Made from a pinot-heavy blend in our nine favourite villages (mostly Ludes, Chigny-les-Roses and Rilly-la-Montagne), the Cuvée Brut Premier Cru is the purest reflection of Cattier’s winemaking style. Made primarily from pinot meunier, it is characterised by its elegance, generosity and intense fruit-forward personality.
Eyes : fine bubbles sparkle upwards through the pale gold of this brut champagne.
Nose : on the nose, intense aromas of spiced biscuit, acacia flowers dominate, followed by assertive notes of fig and plum.
Palate : it is bright and equally intense on the palate, with brioche and peach notes giving way to citrus fruits. These are followed by softer nutty flavours, and notes of acacia honey and forest fruits. The finish is long, with a wonderful freshness that will keep you reaching for your glass.
