Guillaume Roffiaen joined the winemaking team at Feuillatte in 2014, after 12 years at Drappier. He recently became chief winemaker and wines like this rosé show what he hopes to accomplish with the brand. There’s greater freshness here than in the Feuillatte wines we have tasted in the past, and impressive flavor depth and length. It’s a rich style, with scents of strawberries and roses, the flavors driven by grapefruit-like acidity. Pour it with a plateau de fruits de mer.

A young and progressive Champagne brand based on a cooperative model. Pink color; deep orange/cherry nose; dense and juicy with ripe berry fruit and sweet notes of vanilla.

Ripe cherry and pineapple fruit flavors provide pure and juicy up-front pleasure in this creamy rosé Champagne, in a vinous style, while hints of marzipan, spiced orange peel, smoke and grilled herb emerge midpalate, playing out on the firm, focused finish.

Ripe aromas of red apples and strawberries. The palate is energetic and alive with cherry, redcurrant and raspberry flavours.

Darker color rosé with lots of cranberry and strawberry flavors. Yet, it remains fresh and vivid. Full body. Creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Drink now.

The latest rendition of Feuillatte's NV Brut Réserve Exclusive Rosé offers up inviting aromas of peach, raspberries and cherry pits, followed by a medium to full-bodied, pillowy and seamless palate that's charming and demonstrative. This will drink well young.
