    Winemaker's Notes:

    Perrier-Jouet's most famous champagne is its Prestige Cuvee, Fleur de Champagne, ensconced in the Emile Galle designed "flower" bottle that pays tribute to the Belle Époque era.

    Perrier-Jouet launched its famous "flower bottle" in 1969, with an arabesque design of anemones. Since then, it has been one of the world's most celebrated Champagnes - light bodied and distinctive. Aromas of fresh pineapple and white florals warm into complex scents of pear. The bead is intense and effervescent.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lightly floral aromas of green apple, ginger, white bread and honey. Creamy flavors of baked apple, butter and pilsner beer show a nicely maturing disposition. Frothy, yeasty close.

    Ripe, full, and just hinting at maturity, this remains P-J's flagship Champagne. It's poised, elegant and fresh, with signs of nuttiness. A vibrant, joyful wine, it continues to live up to its exuberant bottle.

    A youthful 1998, this has dusty scents of limestone along with firm golden apple and white peach flavors. Prominent acidity keeps it compact and racy, a mouthwatering wine for Nantucket Bay scallops.
