Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve NV (Champagne, France) "lemon, pear, apple..."
40% pinot noir, 40% meunier, 20% chardonnay; a blend of 150 crus; aged 3 years on lees; 10g/L dosage
"Chalky in texture and fresh, this version features a hint of smoky minerality underscoring the flavors of ripe pear, candied black currant and lemon meringue pie." - 90 Points, Wine Spectator
"A medium straw hue and very slight bouquet introduce a palate of primary, lively lemon, pear and apple, as clean, fresh and youthful as I have ever seen this cuvee. Acidity and dosage are more finely balanced than ever, too. Other bottles show more development in toasted brioche and preserved lemon character. All finish short and simple." - Tyson Stelzer
"A bright golden hue with fine and abundant bubbles. Shows flowers and fruit with an emphasis on white fruit such as apples and pears, plus a touch of almonds and hazelnuts. A crisp entry that softens into a pleasant, well balanced palate." - Winery notes
