The robe touches on an intense yellow. The first bouquet develops floral and fruity aromas, such as magnolia or a hint of candied lemon. These are the Grand Cru Chardonnays of Cramant and Avize, markers of the Perrier-Jouët style, expressing themselves freely. The bouquet is deliciously flattering. The attack is forthright and fresh, without being aggressive, before developing a full and generous sensation in the mouth: this is when we speak of the charm of Fleur de Champagne. Like a symphony, these are the horns that we hear as they appear in the background: we thus turn to the Grand Cru Pinot Noirs of the north of Montagne de Reims with notes of fruit compote, centred around yellow fruits, avoiding heaviness. We are in the north, which means that the Pinot Noirs ripened more slowly than the thundering Pinots of the south of the Montagne. A generous presence in the mouth, vinosity of the blend… These are the results of maturity, such as honey, almond or toasty and grilled notes, announcing exceptional length. Once again, this is the signature of seven years of ageing in the cellars.
The invitingly refined, slightly rounded, elusively ethereal house style comes roaring through in this wine's dried rose, vanilla bean, yeasty aromas and in its refined, balanced, crisp and incredibly easy to like flavors. It comes with complex nuances that lift it into the highly rated ranks, and, in every way, from its handsome bottle to its lasting, pleasing aftertaste, this wine speaks of celebration.
Subtle and creamy, with peach and apple flavors shaded by grapefruit and yeast accents. This is compact, despite being ripe, and finishes firm and crisp. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases imported.
The 2000 Brut Fleur de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is a mid-weight offering redolent of flowers, jasmine, honey and apricots. The wine shows pretty inner perfume in an accessible, easygoing style. The Blanc de Blancs is made from two parcels in Cramant, and was disgorged on October 16th, 2006. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015.
