Cattier Premier Cru 2002

Producer | Cattier

Year | 2002
Designation | Brut

Alcohol | 12.5%

A blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Flowering shrub on the nose (acacia) from pale gold colour. Immediately dry and long. Good balance with acidity in check. Very elegant and thoroughbred wine.

Very healthy harvested fruit which one can see in the end result producing good aging potential. Cattier haven't made any specific changes due to climate change although they concede there are tendencies to harvest earlier each year and there are higher levels of alcohol in the wine - they've had to change the label to reflect this. However, they haven't changed their dosage style (approx 10g/litre). They always do the malo-lactic fermentation. Their terroir is mainly located in the Montagne in Reims.
