(From 1996 Vintage) "A stunning Belle Epoque from the legendary 1996 vintage; a blend of 50%Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier, aged for five years. Theelegance of the famous bottle is captured in the wine, the famously floral andethereal style evidenced from the delicate mousse all the way to thebeautifully rounded finish. Even better en magnum." (Simon Field MW, BBRBuyer)

Decanter(From 1996 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Yellow gold. High-toned Chardonnay nose. Quite bright. Good palate weight, impressive freshness, good backbone of acidity. Long, classy. Drink 2007-10.
