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.

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
20% chardonnay imparting elegance and finesse, 40% pinot noir for roundness and structure, 40% pinot meunier for fruit character.
Pale yellow with silver tinges, brilliant and crystal clear revealing a persistent ribbon of delicate bubbles.
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.
Clean on the attack, elegant and complex, a delicate bead imparts freshness on the finish.
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.
