    Winemaker's Notes:

    The aspect - clear, crystalline and translucent; the fresh-fruit and white flower notes offset by a hint of citrus and a vanilla finish on the nose; a wine at once rounded and delicate where depth and acidity combine and contrast with each other.

    Critical Acclaim:

    With it's distinctive flower bottle, this is an immediately recognizable Champagne, both in its looks and its distinctive Perrier-Jouët elegance. Lively while fruits play with acidity and a tangy back-bone of apple skins.

    Loads of gingerbread, honey and grapefruit flavors course through this vibrant Champagne, which is medium-bodied and balanced, lingering nicely on the nutty finish. Should develop quickly. Drink now through 2024.

    Light gold. Fresh citrus and pear aromas are complemented by notes of brioche, honey and minerals. Fruit-driven, silky and refreshing, with an undertone of minerals adding lift to the sappy pear and nectarine flavors. Finishes on a brisk note of lemon curd, with very good, gently toasty persistence. I like this wine's balance and sneaky depth.

    A relatively gentle 2002, this begins in a tight place, yielding little more than ginger scents. With air, fresh nut flavors emerge, hinting at Marcona almonds, macadamia and something sweeter, like marzipan. Probably at its best in a year or two, to serve with a whole roasted fish.
