Wine of the Weekend

Nicolas Feuillatte Réserve Exclusive Brut Champagne

The time has come for a little summer splurge, so we’re going over our usual budget, but hey, it’s for Champagne! In North America, Champagne has become the wine of celebration, and as wonderful as it is to pop a bottle in honour of (insert occasion here), we like Champagne far too much to wait. This weekend we’ll be pouring Nicolas Feuillatte Réserve Exclusive Brut because we love it. Although no celebration is needed, saving $5 is pretty good so maybe there is a reason to celebrate!

Tasting Notes: Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Champagne is a fresh and vibrant expression of the style: citrus, juicy pear, apple and fresh bread all dance across your taste buds amidst elegant bubbles. A pulse of minerality beats just beside the ripe fruit notes, stretching out over a long finish.

Enjoy With: Oysters, smoked salmon, summer salads, grilled fish and vegetables, and ripe cheeses.

Style: A dry, crisp and elegant sparkling wine. 

Terroir / Region: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier make up the traditional blend of Champagne. Pinot Noir adds body and elegance, Chardonnay brings fresh acidity and structure, and Pinot Meunier brings richness and fruit. Over time, Champagne growers have learned the best places to plant each variety, unlocking the terroir of each valley and hillside of the region.

Producer: The Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne house was founded by 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 meet and make wine together, and now more than 4500 growers bring their grapes to craft a wine encapsulating the flavours of the entire Champagne region.

Availability: Nicolas Feuillatte Réserve Exclusive Brut Champagne is available in the sparkling wine section of your local LCBO and for online ordering. Grab a bottle to join our summer splurge this weekend!
