    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of approximately half Chardonnay and half Pinot Noir with small amounts of Pinot Meunier, this crystal bright Champagne is elegant and distinctive, opening with aromas of fresh pineapple and grapefruit, warming into complex scents of pear and ending with wood and leather notes. The bead is intense with brisk effervescence, swirling up into a generous and persistent mousse. It is a balanced, extremely refined wine that, if properly stored, should keep from five to seven years or more, especially if bottled in magnums or jeroboams.

    Lively bubbles and a fine, persistent mousse, matched by a crisp body make this a superb wine to be enjoyed with food. The Fleur de Champagne pairs well with smoked oysters, game hens, delicate Japanese fish dishes, Fettuccini Alfredo or risotto.

    After a patient search for a master glassmaker capable of reproducing a bottle with the 1902 Gallé design, Perrier Jouët launched in 1969, its famous "flower bottle" with an arabesque design of anemones. The first bottles of Fleur de Champagne revealed a Champagne of vivacious delicacy, the epitome of the refined and engaging style of the Art Nouveau movement. Since then, it has been the signature Champagne of Perrier Jouët and is considered one of the world's most celebrated Champagnes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Opens with a lovely bouquet of mild, sweet spice and vanilla aromas. This is light-footed but lusciously textured and flavored, with apricot, lemon and pear notes. The palate feel is refined with very good bead—almost weightless—yet not at all insubstantial. Closes with a long, dry lime and herb fade.
