Salon 2006

A Champagne with perfect structure

Exclusively produced during the great years, Salon is a Champagne elaborated with only Chardonnay. The release of each new cuvee is a very special event. The Salon 2006 is a romantic, lyrical champagne that spent 11 years in the cellars of Mesnil-sur-Ogier, in a silent and cool environment, before emerging, bright with youth.

After a sumptuous start to the summer, with magnificent weather in June and July, there was much to fear, with a very cold and rainy August. But the month of September offered splendid thermal amplitude with cool mornings and beautiful days. Finally, the grape harvest took place on October 2nd, with perfectly mature berries, and musts with fantastic sweetness and moderate acidity.

With its light-blond colour and silvery green reflections, the Salon 2006 displays extremely fine and consistent bubbles, and releases beautiful aromas. The nose develops floral fragrances combined with the zest of citrus fruits and lightly toasted brioche. The secondary aromas reveal notes of fresh hazelnuts, pralines, dried apricots and ripe yellow fruits. This mysterious and charming wine is refined, generous, light and solid. The palate is perfectly structured and the fabulous and sweet acidity hints at great guarding potential, around thirty years. Consume before 2047.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2006 Salon Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut has a shining silver-golden color, the bubbles are tiny and enormously fineùthey probably wouldn't stop rising from the bottom of the glass if you left the wine in it instead of drinking it. On the nose, there is a fascinating, pure and fresh bouquet with acacia, chalk, incense and concentrated lemon flavors. The 2006 is mouthfilling, round and elegant on the palate; it is dense and tight but also fresh and cleansing, provided with great finesse, mineral complexity, length and structure. The finish is clear and aromatic, round and well balanced, slightly creamy, very intense, greatly finessed and truly elegant, with stimulating salinity in the aftertaste.
