Champagne Cattier, the family-owned French brand with nearly 400 years of history in grape-growing and winemaking is partnering with Bottle & Bottles to bring their award-winning champagnes to Singapore. You’ll need no introduction to the name of course, since Cattier is one of the most revered champagne houses in the world.
The deal with Singapore wine retailer Bottles & Bottles means the procurer has exclusive rights to distribute the champagne in the city — making a new addition to the 45 markets where Cattier champagnes can already be found.
The Champagne Cattier range is separated into three categories: Cuvées Tradition, Cuvées Premier Cru and Cuvées Prestige. Bottles & Bottles will be bringing in eight expressions, which includes the Brut Icône (S$58), Brut Dry (Glamour) (S$60), Brut Dry Rosé (Glamour) (S$66), Brut Premier Cru (S$62) , Brut Rosé Premier Cru (S$73), Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru (S$91), Clos du Moulin Brut (S$119), and Clos du Moulin Rosé (S$123). All prices are for a 750ml bottle.
Located in the charming village of Chigny-les-Roses just south of Reims since, the brand is known for their variety of cuvées and revered for their long-standing heritage. While the family has been cultivating vineyards since 1625, the first sale of Champagne Cattier under the family name only took place in 1918. Today, the 13th generation continues to run the business with family and a staff of less than 20 people, led by CEO Alexandre Cattier.
Cattier’s vineyards are mainly classified as Premier Crus, and stretch for more than 33 hectares. This includes one of Champagne’s rarest Clos (enclosed vineyard), the Clos du Moulin, where the Clos du Moulin Premier Cru Multi-Vintage from the Cuvées Prestige range is exclusively produced.
The Cattier house has a great respect for nature and sustainability — its vineyards have met rigorous standards to be certified Haute Valeur Environnementale Level 3 (the highest possible level, and all three grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are harvested traditionally by hand.
Cattier’s arrival in Singapore comes in line with a steady growth in champagne consumption in the country over the last five years. If you like an elegant wine with inimitable style, there’s no question that you’ll enjoy this.
