Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Réserve Particulière

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” — Charles DickensTale of Two Cities

Where ever you may be going, go there in style. And style defines Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Réserve Particulière. The gold is pale gold with a multitude of pin-point bubbles. The flavors are elegant, crisp Granny Smith apples, d’anjou pear with a hazelnut and biscuit finish. If you’re going to go all-out, the perfect pairing is seafood. Nicolas Feuillatte suggests Langoustines in Champagne, and anything with Champagne is awesome in the Wine Harlots book. The music match is Cœur de Pirate eponymous debut album.

The details: 12% alcohol. Appellation: Champagne. Varietals: pinot noir 40%, pinot meunier 40%, chardonnay 20%. Actual retails runs about $30-37 USD.  This was a media sample kindly facilitated by Millissime.
