1998 Perrier-Jouet Fleur de Champagne
Perrier-Jouet's most famous champagne is its Prestige Cuvee, Fleur de Champagne, ensconced in the Emile Galle designed "flower" bottle that pays tribute to the Belle Époque era. Perrier-Jouet launched its famous "flower bottle" in 1969, with an arabesque design of anemones. Since then, it has been one of the world's most celebrated Champagnes - light bodied and distinctive. Aromas of fresh pineapple and white florals warm into complex scents of pear. The bead is intense and effervescent.
