Winemaker's Notes:

Yellow ivory in appearance, clear and bright. Its fine and delicate bubbles crackle gently, revealing the persistent and majestic liveliness of the effervescence.

White flower aromas of hawthorn and acacia, and honey, initially characterise the nose. Gaining in intensity, spicy notes of black pepper and ginger and red fruits combine subtly with the primary aromas.

Clean and direct on the attack, with a delicate mousse revealing a highly attractive mineral quality. The wine boasts impressive structure with an imposing finish and appealing length.

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.
