1996 Perrier Jouët 'Fleur de Champagne Belle Epoque' Champagne (1.5L)
The famous Belle Epoque bottle design is based on a 1902 bottle of Emile Gallé. Today's blend of this prestige cuvée is a fine balance between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, crisp and fresh in a ripe, mature aperitif style. It is lively but complex, showing some toasty flavors to complement the rich, ripe green fruit tastes. Great balance and elegace.
Reticent aromas and flavors hinting at vanilla pastry, peach, citrus and ginger, all beautifully integrated with its firm structure and supple texture. A roasted, nutty element emerges on the finish. Drink now through 2010
The famous 'Flower Bottle', Perrier Jouet's Belle Epoque is one of the most recognizable champagne bottles in the world. Always at the top of the luxury cuvee Champagnes, it makes a gift that will impress!
