"All the lightness of white floral notes: hawthorn blossom, linden blossom and white clover. A fresh stylish wine with good structure, silky and elegant, based on the mineral notes of the best Chardonnay Grand Crus. The floral, fruity notes give way to subtle spicy hints for a pleasant finish on the palate." —winemaker
"And then there is this remarkable wine, whose depth, richness, vitality and precise character move it to the head of the class. A few privileged tasters will point out offerings at twice its price as proof that there is more yet to be had in Champagnes, but those wines, while spectacular, are no more drinkable or polished. For here, in a dramatic yet balanced presentation, is a serious wine that layers complex yeast, brioche and wheat toast notes on top of deep, lemony, chalky, creamy, lightly vanillin bits. Its finish is extraordinarily long, and it conveys an impression of impeccable crafting from beginning to end." —Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

"This shimmers with its flavors of apple and lime, its hint of toast and its soft finish. It's finely balanced, a great selection that is ready to drink now." —Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Elegant, with lovely texture and focused, lively acidity. Flavors of currant, candied lemon zest, honey and white peach lead to the creamy, biscuit-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019. 5,000 cases imported." —Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator

"Vivid gold. Intense aromas of dried citrus fruits and pear, with deeper peach and honey nuances gaining strength in the glass. Deeply pitched and chewy in texture, offering broad orchard and pit fruit flavors and a hint of bitter citrus zest. Finishes with very good length and energy, leaving buttered toast and lees notes behind. This Champagne seems to be approaching its drinking window." —Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar


"A pale Champagne with bright scents of citrus balancing almond skin flavors, this is tightly focused by acidity with glints of limestone. The wine's complex fruit esters finish with a sense of clarity. This will build on its richness with cellar time." —Wine & Spirits Magazine

"The 2004 Brut Cuvee Belle Epoque is a graceful, effortless wine. A sweet, floral bouquet melds into expressive fruit in this refreshing, vibrant Champagne. Crisp green pears, jasmine and apples are some of the notes that linger on the crisp, well-articulated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019." —Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
