Great bottles of the real deal

NV Nicolas Feuillatte Brut 12%

Yeasty at first, with notes of quince, apple and a hint of white mushroom all topped with a ribbon of sweet vanilla/lemon taffy. Bright with plenty of acid that lends this a dry profile, though there is a nice touch of sugar here accenting the lemon, apple and lightly toasty bread notes. The finish is nicely vibrant and full of lemony acids and decent sugar driven length that ends with a flash of baked apple. Easy, gentle style with good flavors and no surprises. 88pts

  • Greg-
    For those of us who do not live in NYC, how about rating the Moet & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, Mumms Mouton Rouge and a few other personal favorites? In reading your column, I did not find some of my common choices even mentioned. I like to learn, but if you don't give me a solid reference frame, I am disappointed. I'm fine with your Bollinger, Taittinger, Laurent Perrier ratings. Perhaps, I expect too much and these are enough for a good comparison. Happy New Year.
