About Champagne Salon

Salon is probably the most prestigious house in Champagne. Unlike other houses, Salon makes just one prestige cuvée, which is made entirely from Chardonnay from the village Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Making champagnes solely from Chardonnay, Salon was founded in 1911 by Eugène Aimé Salon, who held a firm belief that Chardonnay grapes from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger were best suited for champagne production without the need for Pinot Noir or Pinot Meunier.

 

Viniculture

Salon released its first commercial vintage in 1921 and since then, only 37 vintages had been released under the Salon label during exceptional years, each no more than 60,000 bottles produced, while undeclared vintages are released under the Salon-Delamotte label after Salon was acquired by Laurent-Perrier in 1989. Today, Salon’s best grapes come from it’s own 1-hectare vineyard named Jardin de Salon, while the rest of the grapes come from contract growers within Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.

Salon Le Mesnil 1996 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (99)

This bottle of the 1996 Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut was drinking superbly and represents the apotheosis of Blanc de Blancs, unfurling over the course of three hours with a stunningly complex bouquet of citrus oil, confit lemon, dried white flowers and oyster shell, with hints of praline and pastry cream becoming more pronounced as the wine opens up in the glass. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, defined by the incisive spine so typical of the vintage that, here, is cloaked in layers of crisp fleshy and chalky extract. The finish is long, penetrating and saline. Unfortunately, since the 1996 Salon has been traded so zealously over the last decade, finding a bottle that hasn't travelled too far can be a challenge. But from a perfectly stored bottle, this is just the beginning.

Wine Enthusiast (100)

The 35th and most recent vintage of Salon since the house was founded in 1905 is memorable and magnificent. Made only from Chardonnay grown in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, it combines intense minerality, a crisp textured core and the beginnings of maturity. The depths of this wine, with its layers of fruit and steeliness, are superb. Even after 12 years, it still needs to age further. Drink from 2018.
