Appearance: Straw gold. Fine and persistent mousse.
Nose: Surprisingly earthy and rich; warm pastries. A little green apple note in the background. Almost a hint of soy sauce. This is a very distinctive champagne indeed!
Palate: Fruity yet quite savoury. Bready and yeasty, with notes tangy apples. A strong whack of lemon sherbet, elderflower. Meaty, full-bodied, Hoi Sin.
Finish: Fades on those hoi sin, umami-rich notes, a little fruit lingers too.
Overall: Fantastic stuff!
NOT a secret shame
Wow, why haven't we heard about this?
I was served this amazing champagne in a small French restaurant in Sopot, and it is one of the best ones I've ever had. Far better than many of the big known champagne names. Please expand to more countries!

This really does beat most Champagnes I've tried in the £60+ bracket, this is just an insanely low price for the quality. From now on it's either Dom Pérignon, it's going to be this. Well done the Masters of Malt!

I have to admit, in my ignorance, I'd never heard of Cattier. I bought a bottle to treat my wife, but poured it out of site so she wouldn't think me cheap. She didn't, she assumed it was a £100+ bottle of champagne. Now that i also know it's heritage, i proudly pour away in full view of all!
Just delicious, I'll never spend more than £30 for a bottle of champagne while this stuff is available.
