SALON 1996

Using only Chardonnay from the Grand Cru village of le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Salon produces blanc de blanc champagnes which are in a class of their own.

  • Buttery nose with honey, floral and saline qualities; generous and rich on the palate; wonderfully balanced.
  • Wines are aged in bottle for an average of 10 years before the yeast deposit is removed.
  • Only very tiny quantities of this wine are produced and it is only made in the best vintage years.
  • After having already aged for some time, this is stunning on release but will continue to develop for years ye
  • When a wine is this sublime, why pair it with anything?
