This elegant gift box is packaged in a white with gold and copper laced anemone flowers. When opened, the inner vibrant green background holds two hand painted flutes with an encased bottle of Fleur de Champagne 2000.
The first vintage of the new millennium, deep in symbolism, is a wine that marries a distinctive mouthfeel with the vinosity of an exceptional blend produced from 65 hectares of pure grand cru vineyards. Deep yellow in color, the cuvée has a nose that opens with floral, fruit aromas such as magnolia or perhaps a hint of crystallized lemon. These notes arise from the Chardonnay influence from the grands crus of Cramant and Avize, typical of the Perrier-Jouët style. Notes of cooked-fruit of the grand cru Pinots Noirs from the northern Montagne de Reims.
"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."
