And the Champagne Flowed

My Dad came to visit us over Father’s Day weekend, though not for fun, but to help us around the house. Which leads me to the wine we enjoyed while he was here after dinner at a new restaurant we tried, Farrah Olivia in Alexandria, review to come later.

As a present to celebrate the new house he brought us a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Champagne. It weighed in at 12% alcohol by volume, had a traditional champagne cork closure and I find it online anywhere from $23.99 to $31.99.

The nose smelled tart, but then gave way to honey, toast, and almonds, with a bit of yeast. At first it was slightly sweet in the mouth, which I found a little odd, with bits of an almost peachy flavor. It quickly became a dry brut as it moved across the palate, but I really enjoyed the transition from slightly sweet to dry.

I thought it was a great little champagne and a good value for the price point.

Cheers to a new house!
