Wine of the Weekend

Nicolas Feuillatte Réserve Exclusive Brut Champagne

It’s almost the biggest night of the year for one of our favourite wines – Champagne! Although New Year’s is the annual celebration of the end of one year and the beginning of another, it may as well be considered a celebration of Champagne as well! When the time comes to decide which bottle to pop, it’s hard not to trust the long-time favourite Champagne in France, Nicolas Feuillatte Brut. Take the advice of those who invented sparkling wine: pick up a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte, get it good and cold before 11:59 pm, and enjoy ringing in the new year!

Tasting Notes: Nicolas Feuillatte Réserve Exclusive Brut Champagne is a fresh and vibrant expression of the style; juicy pear, apple, crunchy apricot and fresh bread all dance across your taste buds with delicate bubbles. An elegant mineral note mingles with the intense and expressive fruit, stretching out over a long finish. Bottom’s up!

Enjoy With: Ten second countdowns, party hats and confetti poppers, appetizers like smoked salmon or baked brie, and with main dishes featuring seafood, or roast poultry with vegetables.

Style: A dry, crisp, elegant sparkling wine.

Terroir/Region: The Champagne region is made up of several valleys and sub-regions, and over time the proper grape has found its home in each place. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier make up the traditional blend of Champagne: Pinot Noir adds body, elegance, and perfume; Chardonnay brings fresh acidity and structure; and Pinot Meunier brings richness and fruit. Nicolas Feuillatte blends all three!

Producer: The Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne house was founded by the man himself – Nicolas Feuillatte – but after he met Henri Macquart, it expanded into one of the most important co-ops in Champagne. It became a place where growers could make wine together instead of selling their grapes to one of the larger houses. Now more than 4500 growers bring in grapes from all over the region creating a high-quality wine encapsulating the flavours of the entire Champagne region.
