Fleur de Passion

Press reviews

Richard Juhlin - 8,000 Champagnes:
There is a thought-provoking depth reminiscent of Mesnil, combined with Cramant's creamy structure (...) 2002 Fleur de Passion will become a legend.
2008: 96 pts - 2005: 93 pts - 2004: 93 pts - 2002: 95 pts
2000: 92 pts - 1999: 94 pts - 1998: 95 pts - 1996: 95 pts

Sommeliers International - Winter 2013 : (2006 vintage)
Rich and tasty in the mouth, a wonderful moment of happiness.

Decanter - May 2009: ***** (2002 vintage)
Pure and youthful, structured, with a lovely steely acidity. Sophisticated, creamy mousse.

Michael Franz (Wine Review Online, Oct.2008): 95 pts
Vintage 2002: A real connoisseur's choice (...) Terrific stuff.

Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar:
2005: 93 pts - This sappy, penetrating Champagne finishes with resonating spiciness, impressive cling and excellent length.
1999: 92 pts - Very pure, uncompromising Champagne with strong soil character.
1998: 93 pts - A mouthfilling, suave wine with compelling inner-mouth perfume and aromatic lift.
1996: 92 pts - Very pure wine of considerable richness and depth. Finishes ripe, vibrant and long.

Wines & Spirits December 2006: 92 pts (1999 vintage)
Wine's waxy texture melds apple skin with chalk in a youthful, severe structure. This earthiness gives this a tannic feel, nedding age to develop its baroque flavor.

Gault Millau Wine Guide:
18.5 /20 (2005) Fantastic - 19 /20 (2004) - 19 /20 (2002)
Complex and delicate. Sumptuous and dense on the palate.

Jacques Dupont - Le Point Magazine
2005: 17½-18 /20 - Long, delicate, very elegant.
2004: 17½ /20 - Creamy, mouthfilling, intense. Highly delicate and generous at the time.
2002: 17 /20 - Intense, fresh, elegant, very long.
2000: 17½ /20 - Delicate, round and creamy, well structured and very long. Exemplary.

Le Figaro Magazine - Nov 2005:
Fleur de Passion 1995 is one the ten favourite wines chosen by Enrico Bernado "Best Sommelier of the World 2005".
