Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) This bottle with its swirl of dainty anemones holds Perrier-Jouet's most remarkable champagne and one of the world's best known prestige cuvees. The success story began with the discovery of a bottle designed by Emile Galle in 1902. The bottle was so strikingly beautiful that Perrier-Jouet resolved to fill it with prestige champagne. The best grands crus in its vineyard, with a predominance of Chardonnay grapes from the Cote des Blancs district, were blended to make a subtle, elegant, refined champagne. Cuvee "Fleur de Champagne" was launched with brio 1969 reminding the world of the house's history and identifying it with an Art Nouveau style. Since then this champagne has been the emblem of Perrier-Jouet, and the ambassador of its expertise. Apart from making an excellent champagne, Perrier-Jouet was the first champagne house to have dare decorate its bottle with flowerse. The flower-covered bottle is now instantly recognized all over the world.
