Champagne Salon Overview

Available in October 2019
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, The 2007 vintage is the 41st Salon to be released from this tiny champagne house in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Blanc de blancs in its purest form, the wine bears all the hallmarks of a classic Salon – the unmistakeable bone structure, the delicate-decadent fragrance, the elegance belying power beneath. The 2007 also marks the last vintage for some time to be released in the 75cl bottle format.

Weather: Mostly a warm year, 2007 was characterised by unexpected major weather events. A warm spring was followed by a cool summer, although the end of the ripening process was excellent, with harvests taking place in ideal conditions. At Salon, as the uncertain season reached full term, the grapes attained perfect ripeness. The musts were rich yet not excessive in sugar levels, with fine, incisive acids to balance.

Didier Depond, the inimitable President of Champagne Salon, has called Salon 2007 ‘une lumière vive’ – a shining light – and there is indeed a radiant, uplifting quality to this vintage.

“ The 2007 Salon is gorgeous. Weightless, delicate and understated, the 2007 is all class. Today, the 2007 reminds me of the 2004 in its bright, citrus and floral-infused profile, but with a bit more creaminess, mid-palate depth and softer contours, all of which will make the 2007 easy to drink with minimal cellaring. Next to the 2006, the 2007 is quite a bit fresher and more delineated, with none of exuberance, power of tropically-leaning overtones found in its younger sibling. At this stage, the 2007 is a bit inward and closed in on itself. Then again, it is Salon. This is another terrific showing from Salon and the team headed by President Didier Depond. Dosage is 5 grams per liter.”
