Winemaker's Notes:

This cuvée is a work of love for Feuillatte oenologists, as they have selected the best from the vintage. Only truly exceptional years qualify to produce it. It is made from 50% Chardonnay which provides elegance and finesse, and 50% Pinot Noir, for body and power.

It's a pale yellow hue with fine delicate bubbles. It's complex aromas are dominated by notes of pastry and caramel., lifted by subtle touches of fennel, star anise and lemon peel. Smooth and long on the palate; beautifully balanced.

About Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte:

Nicolas Feuillatte created Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte in 1976 as an exclusive Reserve Champagne that today remains the guardian of Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte's quality and style. In 1986, Nicolas Feuillatte created a partnership with the Centre Vinicole de la Champagne, the largest association of growers in Champagne, situated in the heart of the vineyards, near the small Grand Cru village of Chouilly on the outskirts of Epernay.

Nicolas Feuillatte Champagnes are the exclusive issue of Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards and all cuvees are distinguished by the rich full expression of Champagne's unique terroirs.
