Fine and persistent bubbles. Delicately fresh on the nose with crisp apple, lime, and biscuits with honey. On the palate it is round and creamy with streamline acidity. Persistent finish and straight up delicious

Recent tastings of the '06 had convinced me that maybe I don't like Belle Epoque all that much. This '04 was much better, but still has a slight sweetness to it that detracts from the overall package for me.

Pretty oxidative, creamy as hell, overripe peach and apricot nose with more delicate ripe citrus on the palate. Lengthy and delicious, a complex champagne. 8 years on lees.

Leaning towards oxidative style. Rich and round. Bruised lemon with dusty wooly elements, rich and round with a leesy character balanced by an abundance of acidity that races across the tongue. The finish has a walnut like element complemented by buttery brioche. A real pleasure. Went well with steak and green beans! Oxidative champagne and meat(even red) can be surprisingly amazing.

Bigger and bolder than expected. Lacking finesse.
