Yummy. Really delicious for a price. Elegant.
External Reviews for Nicolas Feuillatte Chardonnay Champagne Brut Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs
This champagne has the aroma of fine French pastry, especially almonds, hazelnuts, apples and pears. Wonderfully dry with the impact of rich, ripe fruit. Elegant and well balanced. Savor this elegant Champagne with pâté, grilled salmon, desserts or simply with a great piece of cheese.
As always, one the standard bearers of the NV category; with 20% white grapes, the color in the glass has great depth, with a fine gold tint, and elegant mousse; the nose is dominated by fresh tree fruit, with a hint of exotic spice; the palate reflects the nose with a lingering balanced finish.
A rich version, with vanilla, toast and nut aromas and flavors. Starts out soft, yet there's bright acidity and a long, precise finish. Drink now through 2011.
Wine Spectator ReviewRich and gingery, yet with an underpinning of acidity that keeps it all lively and refreshing, this is full of candied citrus and berry flavors with accents of coffee and toast. It's all harmonious and supple, with a long finish. Drink now.
Pale color. Pristine aromas of lemon rind, toast and nut oils. Frothy, creamy and ripe in the middle; strong and concentrated but not at all heavy. Lovely toasty complexity. Firm and youthful, yet it softened quickly in the glass. this boasts impressive material and Burgundian complexity, and really clings to the palate on the aftertaste. Last year's bottling of this wine is distinctly mediocre; make sure you get the current release, which sports a new label.
A coconut streak stands out immediately, then there's a vertical wall of stone, citrus and licorice. I like the intensity and the definitive spices that layer this wine; it's not shy or pedestrian. The style may or may not suit you, but it's well worth exploring. It finishes up crisp, with a green, citrusy lift.
Attractive candied berry, beeswax, lanolin and honey notes make this bubbly intriguing. Yet the supple and vibrant structure is what drives the flavors to a lingering conclusion.
