We decided to take this delectable Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Rose out for a day punting and put it through some rigorous testing on a sunny afternoon in Cambridge. We tasted a lovely juicy fruit flavours with a dry finish which made it very refreshing. It’s the colour of dusky rose and had a berry scent with a hint of dampness. I always find Roses a little full on to start with, and this particular Champagne is created predominantly with Pinot Noir grapes (60%), along with Pinot Meunier (30%) and Chardonnay (10%). The Pinot Noir gives it very strong, rounded flavours while the Pinot Menunier smooths and balances it out. According to the website it has a ‘festival of fruit flavours’ and you should be tasting blackberries, raspberries, redcurrants and strawberries. We did taste berry flavours however were unable to distinguish exactly which berries we tasted. We’re still learning!
The Nicolas Feuillatte Cellar Master states this Champagne will charm the finest palates – we found it very charming indeed.
The Champagne house also gives a nod not only to the environment, as well as the local economy and the wellbeing of its workers – we like!
