Nicolas Feuillatte

The champagne house was founded in 1976 by the Feuillatte brothers, who had made their money as beverage dealers and coffee importers. They acquired a 12 hectare vineyard in Bouleuse near Reims, and the first brand to be created was “Brut Réserve Particulière”. From the 1980s, there was a cooperation with the wine association CVC (Center Vinicole de la Champagne), which acquired the Nicolas Feuillatte brand in 1986. Later it operated under the name CV-CNF (Center Vinicole - Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte). The cooperative association based in Chouilly today comprises 83 member cooperatives with over 5,000 winegrowers who cultivate around 2,200 hectares of vineyards.

The manufacturing process for the champagne runs fully automated with temperature-controlled fermentation tanks made of stainless steel with a capacity of over 300,000 hectoliters, precision vibrating systems Gyropaletten, automated Degorgierverfahren and very fast bottle lines. The storage capacity is 100 million bottles. The large product range is produced under the two brand names "Nicolas Feuillatte" and "Palmes d'Or". The malolactic fermentation is practiced in the entire range. For the assemblage there are more than 150 cru wines available. The wines mature around 30 months for the vintage blends and five years for the Millésime (Vintage champagne). The Cuvée de Prestige, the top product of the house is "Palmes d'Or Brut Vintage". In 2011, 9.6 million bottles of champagne were sold, 40% of which were exported to around 70 countries. A place in the top five was achieved within 35 years.
