Nicolas Feuillatte is an exceptional man in every respect. With his innate entrepreneurial spirit, throughout his career he has perfected the art of transforming his ideas into pure genius. Having made his fortune in the United States, he decided to create a Champagne that would reflect his own personality.
The Champagne he created was elegant and sophisticated and an immediate hit with an exceptional group of A-listers, amongst them Jackie Kennedy-Onassis and Lauren Bacall…
The brand’s incredible journey was to take a new turn in 1986, when two visionary worlds were to collide: that of
Nicolas Feuillatte, the unconventional, dedicated entrepeneur and the Centre Vinicole de la Champagne (CVC), a bold and pioneering organisation in the Champagne region. For the former, the time was ripe to expand his already successful business operating under the Nicolas Feuillatte brand, while the latter, the CVC, a unified group of wine growers, looking to add new impetus to assure its continued phenomenal success, backed strongly by its visionary leader, Henri Macquart, who was President from 1972-1980. Nicolas Feuillatte relinquished his brand to the CVC, which would later become the iconic Centre Vinicole – Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte. This union would mark the starting point of their meteoric success.
Faced with competition from centuries-old Champagne Houses, in just 35 years, the brand has climbed through the ranks to the roster of the Champagne greats. The secret to its success lies in remaining true to its traditions and respecting the valuable work of its member growers and indeed all its teams. In this way the Champagne House has preserved the nobility and authenticity of the brand, purely and simply.
