Overview

The Brut Réserve is a delicate Champagne that draws its elegance and exuberance from the myriad of villages and different varietals that make up the blend.

The Brut Réserve is aged for at least 3 years in our cellars, even though the legal minimum ageing requirement is 15 months.

150 different crus make up the blend. Reserve wines account for 15 - 35% of the blend to maintain the Brut Réserve’s consistency of quality and style from one year to the next.

Expert Reviews

Feuillatte's history is that of a coffee baron who made it big in Champagne - really big. In fact, they are now one of the largest producers. This sports plenty of chardonnay fruit on the nose, with stonefruits, citrus and honey, and builds into nougat on the palate. A really creamy, straight forward and generally well-priced NV.

Winery Tasting Notes

Assemblage

20% chardonnay imparting elegance and finesse, 40% pinot noir for roundness and structure, 40% pinot meunier for fruit character.

Appearance

Pale yellow with silver tinges, brilliant and crystal clear revealing a persistent ribbon of delicate bubbles.

Aroma

Initially restrained, fresh white fruit aromas of apple, pear and peach intermingle with curry and turmeric spices. As the bouquet becomes more expressive, ripe fruit notes jostle for position.

Palate

Clean on the attack, elegant and complex, a delicate bead imparts freshness on the finish.

Food Matching

The Classic: Aperitif.

The Unexpected: Veal sweatbreads “a la bourgeoise”.

The European: Portuguese salt cod fritters.

The Asian: Sweet and sour prawns.

The American: Curtolla mayonnaise.

As an aperitif, best served at 7 - 8°C. With food, best served at 10 - 12°C.

Winery Profile

'Centre Vinicole - Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte’ is Champagne’s oldest and largestcooperative, a collective of more than eighty-five members, and Nicolas Feuillatte is its keybrand. Its production facilities are so large that they act as second production and storagesite for Moët & Chandon. From a distance, I mistook its sprawling premises betweenÉpernay and Chouilly for a massive shoppingtown! Sixty-five million Nicolas Feuillattebottles are ageing here at any time, and more than seven million are sold each year,ranking the brand fourth by volume in Champagne. All cuvées are produced exclusivelyfrom premier cru and grand cru vineyards, no oak is used and dosage levels are heavyhanded.Feuillatte is on the rise in Australia, with sales reportedly up forty-four percentthis year, I suspect largely due to aggressive discounting of Brut Réserve Particuliére NV.
