While all of Canada will toast 150 years, Montreal’s celebrating its own epic birthday. La belle province’s biggest city is turning an impressive 375 later this month and to commemorate, Nicolas Feuillatte —France’s top-selling champagne — has released a limited edition, 375 anniversary bottle. Featuring its Brut Grande Réserve, a premium blend made up of cru wines worthy of Vintage champagne, the limited-edition bottle is being sold exclusively in the greater Montreal area and online at SAQ.com. As a wink to Montreal’s legendary nightlife, the bottle itself has been emblazoned with an elegant illustration of the city’s inimitable night skyline.
“Montreal isn’t just a national bastion of culture, but a global one as well,” stresses Sylvia Thaemlitz, Vice-President at Mosaiq Wines and Spirits Inc, agents of CNF in Quebec. “We thought a city so rich in history deserved a special bottle, something that would reflect that famous Quebecois charm and well-known joie de vivre. That same spirit reflects Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte’s brand essence. Plus, we wanted to salute a town that’s embraced and made CNF their third-favourite champagne during a blind taste test conducted by some of the province’s top wine writers.”
Reminiscent of a vintage, CNF’s Montreal 375 Anniversary champagne is the brand’s Brut Grande Réserve, a blend made-up of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier cru wines cellar-aged for three years. The champagne is available for approximately $54.75 at all SAQ in the Montreal area and at SAQ.com, and joins CNF’s esteemed roster of champagnes. And like their stunning and bestselling cellar-aged Brut Réserve, this bottle pairs perfectly with a range of dishes, though it’s just as at home with some popcorn and Netflix. “Such is the beauty of this champagne,” says Thaemlitz. “While we use only the finest of ingredients to produce our products, CNF offers bubblies for everyone, and we encourage new customers to enjoy them anywhere, anytime. ‘Enchanting life,’ that’s our motto, and we live by it.”
