This year marks the 40 anniversary of Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte, the brand born in 1976 when Nicolas Feuillatte acquired Domaine de Douleuse, a vineyard near Reims.
Today Feuillatte is the top-selling champagne in France, a stellar achievement for such a young brand, and the number three selling champagne internationally.
To celebrate the anniversary, the company is issuing its $36 Brut Reserve, a non-vintage blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay in a limited edition gold bottle with a matching festive gold sleeve. The Beverly Hills Peninsula is also getting in on the celebration, serving Brut Reserve exclusively at its Sunday brunch in the Belvedere dining room. Executive Chef David Codney has also created a seafood-centric Nicolas Feuillatte brunch to celebrate.
Champagne lovers willing to spend a bit more might consider the Palmes d’Or Brut 2006 ($153), a 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that offers a mix of herbs and dried flowers with a crisp zest of lemon at the finish. The Cuvee 225 Vintage 2005 ($126) is a blend of Premier Cru and Grand Cru wines, offering a palate of apricot and peaches with a hint of oak.
