Salon Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs
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-eighth vintage of Salon in history. Just 62,000 bottles of Salon were produced in 2002.

Weather: The 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness. Generally considered one of the best harvests in the last twenty years.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Le Mesnil-sur-Oger
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 10 years on the lees
Disgorged: June 2014
Dosage: 7 g/l
Drink: Now to 2050+

Tasting Note: A mellow golden colour with a delicate yet lively nose. On the palate flavours of honeyed orange and candied citrus fruits excite. This has a beautiful mouth-feel which is simultaneously rich and restrained. The complexity of the aromas and flavours are almost precision-engineered and the flavours linger long. One of the very best champagnes ever made.
