Colour: In the light, the pale pink of this rosé champagne reveals an orange hue, brought to life by the persistent fine bubbles in the glass.
Nose: Intriguingly rich and complex on the nose, it opens with red berry aromas dominated by redcurrant before evolving delicately to notes of blackcurrant and strawberry. Over time, these mature to dried orange zest, apricot and nuts.
- Palate: There is a beautiful tartness on the palate, with rich and generous flavours of blackcurrant and strawberry mixed with a hint of English toffee, and ending on a dairy caramel finish.
Food Pairings: As an aperitif, the Cuvée Brut Rosé Premier Cru is ideal with a salmon hors d’oeuvre. Pair it with langoustines, baked salmon or even sushi as a main course, and even with a blue-heavy cheeseboard. With its fruity notes, it will work wonderfully with any mirabelle or red berry dessert, or even a traditional fruit crumble.

Champagne Cattier - Independent Family and Maison de Champagne d'Exception since 1625
The story goes back all the way to 1625, and probably even further, when the Cattier family first started planting vines in Chigny-les-Roses, in the hear t of the Montagne de Reims.
Fast-forward to 1916, when Jean Cattier returned to Chigny-les-Roses as a wounded veteran of the Great War. The city of Reims was under siege by the German Army, shaken by an onslaught of artillery shells which would destroy 60% of the city. Champagne traders tried to keep their businesses running under these harsh conditions, but it was an uphill struggle. Unable to sell his poor harvest in 1916, Jean Cattier decided to turn his grapes into wine and produce his own champagne, released at the end of the war in 1918. This signalled the birth of Cattier champagne.
