Nicolas Feuillatte Réserve Particulière Brut, Champagne, Chouilly Épernay
Tasted on September 2010
clear, medium minus gold. Watery rim, some tears.
clean, medium intensity, developing. Aromas of dried fruits, green apple, with
clear autolytic character, showing yeast, bread, biscuit and a hint of honey.
dry, high acidity, no tannin, medium alcohol, medium plus body and a delicate
mousse. Fruit aromas go towards green apple peel, but once again the autolytic
components dominate the palate, adding dough to the nose. There is a salty
touch balanced with some honey.
– Very good quality, premium priced, ready to drink but will not improve. I was impressed at how well it kept as it was stored since 2006. This is a very special champagne for me as it was served at my wedding, so I will always love it...
