Festive symbol par excellence, champagne takes on its full meaning during the end-of-year celebrations when families gather around the finest of feasts. Number one champagne in France, Nicolas Feuillate is the perfect choice to accompany these precious moments and raise a glass to the pleasure of getting together. Discover four cuvées that will enhance each of these carefully planned occasions.

For your holiday tête-à-tête

If the holidays are filled with moments with family and friends, sometimes you need an intimate get-together with your better half to carve some special time and exchange a few gifts. An emblematic cuvée from Maison Feuillatte, this champagne offers a versatile style without being too marked by brioche notes, leaving room for scents of citrus, apple and melon. A treat with a multitude of snacks like oysters, cheese gougères and tempura vegetables to keep the evening going.

For family brunch

Brunch is given a fitting festive touch with this Réserve Exclusive Rosé champagne harmoniously composed of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. Bursting with fresh red berries, it also offers fresh scents of redcurrant, blueberry and raspberry. It will pair well with a varied and abundant table of fruit salad, pastries, smoked salmon and other midday delights.

For Christmas Eve

Made from organically grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this extra brut champagne offers notes of toast and brioche. Fruity notes of mirabelle plum and exotic mangosteen are complemented by raspberry and pomegranate in a complex aromatic profile. Beautiful backbone and length. Promises festive and magical tasting moments with all New Year's Eve luxuries, such as oysters au gratin, smoked salmon gravlax, goat cheese canapes and much more.

For the stroke of midnight

The New Year frenzy is the number one occasion for traditions that call for champagne. To mark the stroke of midnight, there’s nothing quite like a cuvée Brut 2015 Blanc de Blancs, therefore 100% Chardonnay. This champagne of great elegance and purity presents notes of pink grapefruit, lemon, white peach as well as mineral accents. A pure delight to enjoy on its own, accompanied by your best wishes.

For New Year's Day

If your tradition revolves more around January 1st dinner, you will undoubtedly want to mark this moment by proposing a toast to all those present. This Blanc de Blancs made exclusively from Chardonnay is aged in bottle for at least eight years. It offers a complex bouquet composed of white flowers, citrus fruits and toasted almonds. The elegant palate reveals fine bubbles and mineral and toasted notes. A true treat with lobster, crab and salmon tartare.

While champagne goes hand in hand with the New Year, it is also a partner of many other occasions. Valentine's Day, birthdays, graduations: plan these moments now while the SAQ offers a large selection of the Nicolas Feuillatte range.
