Wine Review: Nicolas Feuillatte is a classic name when it comes to Champagne. Year after year I’m impressed by the Brut Reserves quality, considering it is $10+ less expensive than most of the other well-known brands. The nose is a bouquet of flowers that sits atop a fruit basket; bananas, apples, pears, oranges, lilacs, and toast. On the palate the bubbles take over at first but quickly gives way to peaches, nectarines, and hints of jackfruit. The toast and yeast notes of this wine linger for quite some time, but unfortunately the fruit notes do not. If this isn’t already a go to, it should be. Enjoy soon, but should hold for 5 years. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: Pale straw-gold appearance. Brilliant and crystal clear, revealing a persistent ribbon of delicate bubbles. Nose: Fresh white fruit aromas of apple, pear and peach intermingled with curry and turmeric spices. Palate: Clean, elegant and complex on the attack. A delicate bead imparts freshness on the finish. Food Pairing: The wine is an ideal accompaniment to chicken, salmon, shellfish, sushi, cheeses, fruit and desserts
