As the festive season is around the corner. For those of you planning on hosting Christmas Parties or just celebrate. I decided to look into some wines that you could try or eventually stock up for the holidays. Of course I had to start with Champagne. I went for Champagne from Nicolas Feuillatte.
For wine rookies out there please note that there is a very big difference between sparkling wine and champagne. Not all sparkling wine is champagne. Some countries have their own version of sparkling wine–which I shall get into later. In France and renown to the world over is Champagne. This is because this wine produced in the Champagne region. If the wine is produced in any other region it cannot be classified as champagne.
I tasted the Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Champagne. It’s a non vintage one but aged for 15 months or less.
To the nose it was citric, hints of pear, some honey and had floral notes. I tasted honey, it was creamy, crisp, fresh and fruity. This wine is perfect for a starter, main and dessert. It could go well with a salty starter, spicy white meat or vegetables especially with a fusion with Thai or a Chinese influence. A chocolatey dessert would do with this. It should preferably served 7-8 C as a starter.
I give this two thumbs up!
Enjoy your Wine Wednesday!
