Description & Technical Information
-
Champagne's first, finest and rarest Blanc de Blancs, Salon is the legacy of one man who devoted his life to creating the perfect pure-Chardonnay champagne. Produced from grapes grown on the deep chalk soils of Le Mesnil, still one of Champagne’s only Grand Cru villages, the apparent simplicity of this formula belies the challenges inherent in creating a wine of Salon’s complexity. Made on average only three times per decade, Salon Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs 2002 is only the thirty-seventh vintage of Salon in history.

Weather: The 1999 season was one of the warmest in the 20th century and wasn't without complications along the way. A fine early spring was followed by a period of stormy weather and hails. In the early summer months of June and July there were some spells of rain, but impressive heat in the weeks leading up to the harvest produced wines with a high alcohol content and low acidity, resulting in a complex and lively vintage.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Le Mesnil-sur-Oger
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 10 years on the lees
Dosage: 7 g/l
Drink: Now to 2040+

Tasting Note: Pale yellow, with a lively nose of citrus and grapefruits. The beady texture on the mid-palate combines with brioche, white fleshy fruits like pear and lemon to create a rounded flavour that develops right through until the finish. A stunning reflection of the 1999 vintage, Salon have managed to capture the opulence of this interesting harvest.
