Wine Crush Wednesday: Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Rosé

It’s the month of love and what better excuse to splurge!

Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne, (pronounced Nee-ko-la Fur-yat), is proposed as the number one selling Champagne in France and the third biggest-selling Champagne brand in the world.

Nicolas Feuillatte, the man behind the brand, was a Paris-born New York entrepreneur, international jet-setter and socialite with friends in high places the world over.

He made his first fortune as a coffee merchant in New York and went on to make his second by creating his own brand of Champagne in 1976. The Champagne he created was elegant and sophisticated and an immediate hit with an exceptional group of A-listers, amongst them Jackie Kennedy-Onassis, Lauren Bacall, Shirley MacLaine, Sophia Loren and Princess Diana.

He teamed up with a collection of grower co-operatives based in Epernay and the brand began its miraculous rise through the ranks of the Champagne greats to compete at the very top, selling more than 10 million bottles of Champagne a year.

Nicolas Feuillatte, the French entrepreneur behind the remarkably successful Champagne that bears his name, died at the age of 88, in August 2014, in the same week as his close friend and actress Lauren Bacall.
