Salon is a unique Champagne. Every aspect in the production of this exceptional wine is on the singular. A single grape variety, Chardonnay, a single terroir, the Côte des Blancs, a single cru, the Mesnil-on-Oger, a single year, here 2006.
Vintage 2006 is romantic and lyrical. Despite 11 years of aging in the cellar, this cuvée is a vital experience and remains incredibly young. Mystery and charm are intact. A refined but generous champagne, aerial but solid. The impression of the double character is confirmed in the mouth, where the structure is impeccable.
2006 is undeniably a great vintage that promises wonderful moments ... Moderate acidity announces an aging potential of thirty years!
This cuvée will make the perfect match with Iberian ham and will also divinely accompany a mash potatoes with truffles or an extra-black chocolate tart for dessert.
One of the greatest Champagne in the world but also one of the rarest, (80 000 bottles per year) only produced when the vintage (the year) is excellent. Thus, only 37 cuvées in 100 years ! A champagne aimed to connoisseurs.
