Winemaker's Notes:

To the original Fleur de Champagne wine, Perrier-Jouët's Chef de Caves (winemaker) adds a touch of the finest red still wine produced with Pinot Noir grapes. This Champagne possesses both remarkable delicacy and finesse as well as certain full-bodied mellowness-all bound together in a magically radiant hue, perfect for your special loved one. A hint of soft tannin from the additional Pinot Noir makes Fleur de Champagne Rosé an ideal partner for fine cuisine such as smoked salmon or tempura.

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.
