Yummy. Really delicious for a price. Elegant.
External Reviews for Nicolas Feuillatte Chardonnay Champagne Brut Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs
Open from the beginning, with aromas of pear and aple. The palate is straightforward and likable, with semi-sweet apple and citrus flavors. Good acidity and balance keep it upright, and the finish is long, it's where you get the essence of the wine's sweet-ish dosage.
A fruit-driven wine, with aromas of dried apples, pineapple and citrus, even a bit of honey. Flavors verge on tropical, but it boasts a creamy texture and a crisp, dry finish. A bit New World in style, but well done.
Creamy, with caramel tones in the flavor spectrum, along with apricot, grapefruit and a touch of mineral. The mousse is assertive, helped along by a chalky feel on the finish. Drink now.
A classy, elegant style of Champagne with a tart, steely structure and firm, tight flavors. Very dry and a bit closed down, but the length and concentration suggest some wonderful development ahead. This style of Champagne would benefit from cellaring; at least four or five years would be optimal.
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.
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.
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.
