    Winemaker 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.

    Perrier-Jouët, , France - Other regions
    Perrier-Jouet
    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.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
