Champagne Cattier, one of France’s oldest family owned wineries, has launched a range of champagnes across Majestic stores this summer. The new listing includes the house’s Premier Cru Rosé and Brut, plus premium Blanc de Blanc and Vintage releases – including the prestigious, critically acclaimed Clos du Moulin.
The move marks the first national listing for Champagne Cattier in the UK, with the wines going on sale across all Majestic’s 200+ stores from September onwards.
Originally founded in 1618, Cattier is renowned as the producer of Champagne Armand de Brignac – the label behind the celebrity favourite champagne; ‘Ace of Spades’. Whilst the bottles under this label have tended to grab the spotlight, Cattier have continued to produce quality focused champagnes under the guidance of a 12th generation grower – Jean Jacques Cattier and son Alexandre Cattier
For Majestic, having a key range of exciting, premium champagnes has become a real focus – with the Buying Team tasked with working with new and current suppliers alike to refresh the range available. The Cattier launch is one of a number being lined up ahead of the crucial winter period.
“We’re delighted to be bringing these exclusive Cattier lines to Majestic, and believe they are an exceptional addition to our range,” explains Majestic’s chief commercial officer, Rob Cooke.
“Champagne-lovers can look forward to trying something truly unique – with a product rooted in the history of the region, that really showcases why it’s worth spending a little more. We are constantly working to ensure Majestic remains an exciting and rewarding place to shop, with superb wines and unbeatable expertise you simply cannot get anywhere else. These new launches continue to build on that – and we have plenty more in the pipeline before Christmas too”
Cattier’s marketing director, Virginie Delcourt, added: “We’re excited to be listing our wines in Majestic, and are sure their in-store wine experts will do a great job of introducing their customers to these new additions. With over 400 years experience in making champagne we’re really looking forward to introducing UK consumers to our fantastic wines and further growth in this key category.”
