Winemaker's Notes

Perrier Jouët 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. The experience, unsurpassed, tastefully arrives with two celebratory anemone glass flutes.

"A stunning Belle Epoque from the legendary 1996 vintage; a blend of 50%Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier, aged for five years. Theelegance of the famous bottle is captured in the wine, the famously floral andethereal style evidenced from the delicate mousse all the way to thebeautifully rounded finish. Even better en magnum." (Simon Field MW, BBRBuyer)
