Champagne Cattier Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Brut : Silky and Sophisticated !
Score : 92+/100
This Blanc de Blancs Champagne was COMMENDED and recommended as a best buy/value at Social Vignerons Blanc de Blancs Champagne AWARDS.
This is a Non-Vintage cuvée.
The transparent bottle elegantly puts forward the bright lemon-yellow color of this wine. It’s just a little pale, just a little gris, appealing to look at.
The nose is powerful in its intensity, but delicate in its expression. It’s mainly floral and fruity, with a touch of lifted grassiness. Orange peel and honeysuckle are the main notes, mellowed by honey. A lively expressive aromatic profile.
The palate is dry with solid acidity, but what strikes is its smoothness and silky feel. This leaves your palate with a relaxing impression, like floating on a soft cushion which allows to enjoy the lively flavors peacefully. It’s a world of slightly vegetal honey, like acacia honey. It is smooth, mellowed and pleasing, yet with a good grip from the lime and herbal scents. Intense lemon and white peach fruits add to the large number of layers one can discover in this complex Champagne wine.
The finish delivers a green tea-like bitterness that makes you salivate positively and provide some savoriness after this word of fruit and delicate honey. Silky phenolic texture to the finish as well.
An extremely charming Blanc de Blancs, with tension but expressive, and filled with a charming extrovert and sophisticated personality.
Retails around $45 or 40€. Find this wine to buy on Wine-Searcher
