Fresh, lively, complex and balanced, this exquisite bubbly from Cattier, which was established in 1763 in Chigny-les-Roses, has gained a celebrity following - most notably, new owner Shawn 'Jay Z' Carter, who is a longtime fan.
Tasting Note: This is a three-way assemblage: three grape varieties - and equal percentage of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with 20% of Pinot Meunier - and a blend of 3 vintages, 2009, 2010 and 2012. The nose is full of flavours and rich with notes of white flowers and crème patissière. However, the palate is crisp, fresh and delicate with a lovely creamy texture. It is elegant, refined and very stylish (unlike the bottle!). It's a pleasant combination of power and concentration blended with finesse and elegance. While the dosage is 9g/l, it feels much drier, more like a 5g/l and this probably due to the spinal cord of acidity. Score - 95. (Christelle Guibert, decanter.com, Nov. 24, 2016)
