1999 Perrier Jouët "Fleur de Champagne Belle Epoque" Brut Champagne

SKU #1033412 92 points Wine Spectator

 Round and expressive, offering caramel, apricot and vanilla pastry aromas and flavors on an elegant frame. On the soft side, this is a voluptuous, inviting Champagne that's easy to sink into, with a long, nutty finish. Drink now through 2018. (BS)  (11/2008)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Pale straw with a lively bead. Musky yellow plum and cling peach aromas are complicated by nutmeg and dried flowers. Broad and fleshy, with powerful pit fruit and cherry pit flavors and a slightly bitter citrus pith grip. An earthy, weighty, serious style of Champagne, in need of rich food. (JR)  (11/2007)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1999 Brut Fleur de Champagne Cuvee Belle Epoque comes across as sweeter and softer than the 2000, with generous honeyed notes of apricots and flowers. The wine shows plenty of length, with pretty notes of sweetness that linger on the finish. The 1999 is 50% Chardonnay from Grand Crus in the Cote des Blancs, 45% Pinot Noir from Mailly, Verzenay and Verzy in the Montagne de Reims. Disgorged on November 6th, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016. (AG)  (12/2008)

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
