Salon Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs 2006 is the fortieth vintage of Salon in history. The 2006 season was a warm and dry year. Long, sunny days and cool nights throughout June and July set-up the harvest perfectly. Although temperatures dropped in August, September saved the vintage with glorious sunshines aiding the flawless maturity of the grapes. Just 53,000 bottles of Salon were produced in 2006.

Tasting note: A golden colour with hints of green and silver shimmers. Tiny bubbles fill the glass. On the nose lightly toasted almonds and ripe zesty fruits. The palate is a combination of hazelnuts and dried apricot with peaches and lemon hints. The long lasting palate is superb. This champagne is stunning now and given time will age superbly. As with all Salon vintages, patience will be rewarded here.

“The 2006 Salon is a very rich wine, almost uncharacteristically so. Deep and exotic the 2006 exudes richness in all of its dimensions, with myriad inflections of sumptuous fruit that fill out its ample, large-scaled frame. Today, the 2006 is surprisingly accessible for a young Salon, but it needs time to shed some baby fat. At times, the 2006 recalls the 2002, but it appears to have more phenolic intensity and overall structure. Even with all of its flamboyance and pure volume, the 2006 retains quite a bit of energy and freshness. I imagine it will be a fascinating, utterly compelling Champagne to follow over the next several decades.”
