The newest release and first 2012 vintage champagne I’ve tried. It’s very linear at this early stage, still sharp as a tack with high acidity and structure masking a lot of the fruit. Very good potential, but I wouldn’t open for at least 5 more years.

Still a bit sharp, but I did enjoy the complexity and bit of apricot (or maybe it was peach?) amidst the citrusy acidity, this being my first bottle of Belle Époque. Bought this among four bottles I tried over my 40th birthday weekend.

Distinkt autolytisk. Riktigt bra, fint drickmogen nu. Utvecklad med ren bra frukt och många lager.

Lovely light, bright champagne. Acidity masques the fruit a bit, but great nose and body. Good with a rich bite, and a proper chill on the bottle.

Refreshingly dry. Yeasty, tight bubbles. Pear and meyer lemon. Crisp and a wonderful bottle of bubbles.

Too young, too tightly wound, too floral, not enough richness on the palette, disjointed and awkward right now. Do not drink.

2012. Closed, tight, reduced, peach, mandarin, sweet palate, short finish. Not my style.
