  • What the experts say...

    Grande Vinosité mais aussi superbe finesse de texture et de bulles, caractère de chardonnay mûr, minéral et remarquablement complexe, allonge suave et tapissante: 1990 et 1995 sont au sommet de leur forme et offrent et témoignent parfaitement de la race des grands champagnes du Mesnil qu'exprime Salon. On peut les boire maintenant ou les mettre en cave. (Bettane et Desseauve 2005)

    This vintage Blanc de Blancs is highly exclusive. On the nose, it exudes aromas of acacia and hawthorn, hazelnut, brioche and toasted bread. The palate is creamy, tangy and mineral, and the very long finish has iodine notes.

    Information about domain Salon

    Maison Salon was founded in 1760 by François Delamotte. It came under the ownership of the Laurent Perrier Group in 1988 and is totally unique. It produces just one champagne, the "S" cuvée. This top-class Blanc de Blancs was created at the beginning of the 20th century. The champagne is single variety (100% Chardonnay), single terroir (la Côte de Blanc) and single cru (100% in Mesnil-sur-Oger). In actual fact, it is produced from a single hectare parcel, "le Jardin de Salon", and 20 small parcels in Mesnil sur Oger which were selected by Aimé Salon himself at the turn of the century. This champagne is only produced in exceptional years and always has a vintage. The wine is kept on the lees for 12 years and disgorged manually, only ever to order, just before shipping. Barely more than 30 vintages have been produced commercially since it was founded. Highly sought-after by overseas champagne lovers (80% of sales are completed outside France), this Chardonnay grand cru is one of the most iconic champagnes.
