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 2006 is only the fortieth vintage of Salon in history. Just 53,000 bottles of Salon were produced in 2006.

Weather: The 2006 vintage was a year of mixed weather. It began with a rainy spell and late spring, but with little or no frost in the vineyards. Early summer was positive, with the months of June and July creating perfect conditions for flowering. Although there were some storms in late-July, the overall health of the vines was great since the weather remained hot through to the harvest with spells of rain in August promoting even healthier grapes.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Le Mesnil-sur-Oger
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 10 years on the lees
Dosage: 4 g/l
Drink: Now to 2040

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.
