Salon is a name that conjures up thoughts of exclusivity and excellence amongst wine connoisseurs. Made only in exceptional years, Salon has produced just a handful of vintages since wealthy furrier, Eugène-Aimé Salon, first began production of this original Blancs de Blancs Champagne in 1911.
2004 Salon, Blanc De Blancs, Brut, 'Le Mesnil'
The 2004 vintage displays all the qualities expected of Salon : complexity, purity, freshness. Clean and lively, the wine's intense freshness and minerality deliver on its aromatic promise, an impressive nose with notes of minerals, smoked tea, and just a touch of mint. On the palate with hints of brioche, and beautiful flavours of apple and peach
''At the end of the day, you really can’t make a wrong choice.
As long as you pay attention to what it is that you don’t like about a wine
each bottle will get you closer to what you do like.
Take it one glass at a time!''
