"In true romantic fashion, Belle Epoque is a marriage of the very best that Champagne can produce: wines from Cramant, Avize, Ay, Mailly and Verzenay, the region's most highly-rated vineyards. One half of the blend is Chardonnay of surpassing finesse and delicacy. The other half is Pinot Noir of noble richness and complexity. The blend of these wines yields a Champagne of ravishing fragrance and style, offered in the famous "Flower Bottle". The combination of wonderful Champagne and a beautiful package make Fleur the perfect partner to your most romantic encounters."

The PJ Belle Epoque set is among the most tasteful and recognizable gifts in the world of wine. The Set includes one bottle of Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque Champagne and two glasses, all beautifully gift-boxed. This famous "flower bottle" was formerly known as Fleur de Champagne in the US.

Reviews:

"Tightly knit flavors of poached apple and apricot, lemon parfait, spun honey and ground anise are wrapped around a core of minerality in this harmonious Champagne. The refined, raw silkólike texture carries the smoke and chalk accents on the long finish. Drink now through 2027." -Rated 92, Wine Spectator

"Light, bright gold. Powerful aromas of poached pear, cherry pit, pungent flowers and buttered toast, with a touch of white pepper adding vivacity. Supple and weighty on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a bitter kick of musky rhubarb. Closes smooth and long, with very good breadth and building smokiness." -Rated 92, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
