Review #4 | Nicolas Feuillatte, Cuvee 225, 2005, Chouilly, France Nicolas Feuillatte 2005

Nicolas Feuillatte is a rather well known name in the states with their entry level, “Reserve Exclusive.” While a lovely entry level champagne, we wanted to bring one of their top bottles to our Reserve & Baller Club members and show what a high caliber and special wine this house can create.

Feuillatte is a cooperative champagne house, meaning that they have many members who give their grapes to one wine maker and he creates the blend from their grapes. This can provide an impressive assortment of grapes to choose from where the possibilities of what can be created are almost limitless.

This expression of Cuvee 225 is purely sumptuous and rich. If you want to taste what being rich tastes like….this is your gal. This cuvee gets its name from the 225 liter barrels that this wine is fermented in. This provides rich, round, and complex flavors. The oak supports the evolution of the wine and grape selection…which is comprised exclusively of Grand Cru and Premier Cru grapes, e.g. the creme de la creme! Vanilla ripe yellow fruits, and candied lemon and orange slices intermingle in the flavor profile. The finish is long and decadent. This is not a bottle you will ever find in stores….but then again…none of our fizz club bottles are 😉
