Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About Perrier-Jouët:

Perrier-Jouët was founded in 1811 in Epernay by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier and his wife, Adele Jouët. One of the most prestigious houses in Champagne, the firm was shipping wine to Great Britain by 1813 and to the United States by 1837. Perrier-Jouët owns 266 acres of vineyards in Champagne, with an average rating of 95%, and is known worldwide for its consistency of style.

By the end of the 19th Century, its Brut cuvées earned the reputation of nobility and prestige that continues today. Perrier Jouët's glamorous "Cuvée Belle Epoque", known in the United States as Fleur de Champagne, was launched in 1969 and has become the most important cuvée de prestige to appear after World War II. The bottle is adorned with enamel-painted anenomes originally created by Emile Gallé in 1900, but the wine is as famous for its taste as it is for its beautiful packaging.
