External Reviews for Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Rosé Champagne
Bright pale pink color with highlights of darker pink. Fruity notes on the nose of raspberry, strawberry and red plum. Welcoming flavors of red cherry, raspberry and hazelnuts provide a complex and full palate. Long finish with well-balanced flavors and even a slight touch of creaminess at the end. Typical red Pinot.
A lively sparkling rosé, with a bright, citrusy overtone to fruit-forward flavors of strawberry puree and black raspberry, showing accents of biscuit, walnut skin and gumdrop. Drink now through 2016.
A fruity style, showing plenty of kirsch, apple and dough notes allied to an open framework and a creamy texture. Moderate length. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Dry, full-bodied and on the austere side, weaving dried berry and herb notes through the dense, vivid structure. Not an obvious rosé, yet it has style and intensity. Drink now through 2004.
Salmon-orange. Cool but slightly harsh aromas of strawberry, pomegranate and mint. Frothy and ripe in the mouth, with rather simple flavors of red fruits, spice and earth. Offers modest flavor development but decent intensity and a creamy middle.
Full of gingerbread, fig compote and tobacco aromas and flavors, this Champagne shows maturity and breadth. Firmly structured and elegant, it has the vivacity to match food. Drink now through 2005.
Salmon in color, with a smooth, lush bouquet that offers yeasty bread notes, berries and a whiff of citrus peel. Flavors of nectarine and white peper are classy and restrained, while the finish is tasty and sleek. Mouthfilling, with fine fruit and ample spice.
