Pronunciation of Nicholas Feuillatte (Champagne)

Having a wee bit of a debate with the passengers on pronunciation.... I say it's "foy-laht"

Am I wrong?

They are saying "fiat" or "fee-yah-tay"

Help us French speakers!

Definitely no "L" in the pronunciation. More like foy-yacht.

Just like it's spelled

"Feu-yacht" would be close, though there's not an exact English equivalent for the "euill" . . . .

More like foy-ee-at, with perhaps half a y in front of the last syllable.
