1995 Perrier Jouet "Fleur de Champagne Belle Epoque" Champagne
Soft and round, with more exotic fruit characters. This is ripe, the acidity well integrated. Citrus and toast mix with ripe apricot and pineapple. It exudes the more seductive side of this famous brand, now mature, but still very much alive.
This is the world-famous flower bottle. One of the best of the famous tete de cuvee's from the grand marques, this is always a well recieved gift. The Perrier-Jouet team did a great job with the fruit from the very successful 1995 vintage, producing a very fresh, but altogether yeasty and full flagship for their line.
