This first NICOLAS stores, specializing in wines and spirits, opened their doors in the center of Paris in 1822, one year following Napoleon's death. Providing superior quality and follow-up at a reasonable price has been our recipe for success. Nicolas had 42 branches in and around Paris by 1900, 138 by 1919, 233 by 1932, and today we have 522 in France, 80 in England, 8 in Belgium, 1 in Poland, 2 in Russia, 1 in Morocco. It forms part of the CASTEL Group. As the number of our stores has grown, NICOLAS' fame has spread owing to intense advertising through both the movies (the first animated advertising cartoons in 1921) and billboards. Nectar, the character symbolizing NICOLAS, was born in 1921 by the pen of the artist Dransy. The delivery guy toured the world with 32 bottles... The great poster designers of the inter-war period signed on as well : Iribe, Loupot, Cassandre, and Brunhoff, who temporarily left behind his little brainchild, Babar the elephant, for the famous delivery guy.

  • Hey DV - didn't mean to sound like an argument with you - I know you're ... ... She champions guys like Nicolas Joly. Well his production of Coulée de Serrant is a little over 2000 cases a year. Meanwhile in Napa, one of Parker's favorite Cabs is Shafer Hillside Select. What's their production? Oh, a little more than 2000 cases a year. That's ... Read More

  • Yeah, we've done ring-around-the-rosies several times on this subject ... ... discussing individuals like Nicolas Joly, Josko Gravner (who perhaps most greatly put those amphorae on the winemaking map), Rudolf Steiner, Masanobu Fukuoka, and even Greg's favorite Alice Feiring, amongst others? Afraid B.C. is playing catchup, and RP the peripatet... Read More

  • I just read an interesting article about some wine makers in BC trying wine made strictly from grapes with nothing added, in clay amphoras.  Is this nothing new in California?http://www.winealign.com/blog/2014/10/22/the-british-columbia-wine-report-october/?utm_source=Vintages+Newsletters&utm_campaign=5d8b674693-BC_Wine_Oct&utm_medium=email&utm_...

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Cabernet/Malbec Nicolas Catena Zapata Argentina Red 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Enjoyed this on 4 Sep, 2014. Have had it in my cellar since Nov 2009, so 5 years. Dark purple in colour, strong and intense with blackcurrant and minerals on the nose, plus some coffee and leather, Complex, ripe, and intense on the palate, and maintains a high level of elegance, smoothness while still having some intense power. It could well ha... Read More

  • Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Noirs 2000

    Snoothrank:

    This 2000 vintage grand cru releases toast, honey and apple scent on the nose and brings some power to the mouth by virtue of the Pinot Noir component. Lots of brioche, almond and vanilla on the finish. Drink now with light entrees. 89 points. Read More

  • Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne Reserve Particulaire NV

    Snoothrank:

    I have had this bubbly in the past and been reasonably satisfied - especially given the price. This time the mousse is weak and dissipates rapidly - a possible fault. The nose is sound, however, with vanilla, melba and brioche. The palate effect is gentle and comparable with the bouquet. But more bubble please. 85 points. Read More
