My favorite French Champagne under $50 – Nicolas Feuillatte NV Brut Blue Label

0

New Years Eve wine means Champagne, but if you have a crowd at your house like I will, how do you serve French Champagne without breaking the bank? Why not try my favorite French Champagne under $50 Nicolas Feuillatte NV Brut Blue Label.

Nicolas Feuillatte created his brand in 1976, after inheriting a vineyard near Reims, and Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte is an exception in a world where the leading brands have built their image and reputation on a history of more than a hundred years.

Like a breath of fresh air, this wispy Champagne energizes the palate with its floral, ginger and bread dough notes. A light-medium body Champagne it is well-proportioned and harmonious, it ends with a mouthwatering tang. Traditionally, aged for three years and a blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Meunier.

I must say I like this better than Moet Chandon Imperial and even Veuve Clicquot, and if you like Rose Champagne, well they make a wonderful Rose as well. Pick up some for your New Years Eve celebration and Happy New Year to you! – Kirk Green, Amazing Grapes Wine Buyer/Sommelier
