Winemaker's Notes

The 1999 Fleur de Champagne is a Brut wine, composed of 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier grapes. The blend contains a high proportion of Chardonnay that comes from the grand crus of the Côte des Blancs. Pinot Noir originating from the 100-percent-rated villages of Mailly, Verzenay and Verzy in the Montagne de Reims combine with the Chardonnay to create a delicate cuvée. The cold, frostless winter of 1999, coupled with a moderate spring and cool August, were perfect weather conditions, resulting in an excellent harvest.

Color: Pale gold

Bouquet: The wine shows hints of floral and fruit aromas, opening with white flowers and a touch of honey, ending with a hint of brioche.

Palate: The palate is crisp and clean, with hints of almond and nougat. While the cuvée is light and elegant, it has a surprisingly long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"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. "
92 Points

"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. "

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
