Ratings & Tasting Notes:
93 points Wine Enthusiast The famous Belle Epoque bottle design is based on a 1902 bottle of Emile Gallé. Today’s blend of this prestige cuvée is a fine balance between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, crisp and fresh in a ripe, mature aperitif style. It is lively but complex, showing some toasty flavors to complement the rich, ripe green fruit tastes. Great balance and elegace. (12/2004)
92 points Wine Spectator Reticent aromas and flavors hinting at vanilla pastry, peach, citrus and ginger, all beautifully integrated with its firm structure and supple texture. A roasted, nutty element emerges on the finish. Drink now through 2010 (11/2004)
