Nicolas Feuillatte Reserve Exclusive Brut (NV)

Product description

Silver Medal winner at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2020, this is a lovely balanced Champagne.  Composed of 20% Chardonnay, for elegance and delicacy, 40% Pinot Noir, for roundness and structure, and 40% Pinot Meunier for fruitiness. Pale gold in color, with an abundance of delicate bubbles. Floral aromas of fruit with subtle predominance of white fruits: pear, apple, almonds and hazelnuts. Fresh opening, smooth, pleasant, and balanced.  Beautiful on the nose with honey, wild strawberry and white chocolate leading through to a generously complex palate. It's zesty with a lovely balance and an enjoyably long finish. 

91 Points - Wine Spectator     A harmonious Champagne in an aperitif style that appeals for its fine balance, lightly mouthwatering acidity and pretty flavors of ripe apple and raspberry fruit, pickled ginger, toast and lemon zest.

91 Points - James Suckling     Cooked peaches with apples and hints of spices follow through to a full body with rich fruit, yet a very creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Fun amount of spiced pears with apples here. Light bitterness at the finish. Drink now.
