SALON, 1997

CHAMPAGNE

“The Salon 1997 Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut opens with a deep, intense and concentrated yet pure, fine and complex bouquet of chalk intertwined with ripe yellow-fleshed fruit, brioche and hazelnut notes. This is a bright, perfectly matured Champagne from Mesnil-sur-Oger with hints of caramel, white mushrooms, parsley root and a beautiful varnish on the nevertheless fresh nose with its characteristic chalky Mesnil expressions. The palate is full and intense, almost rich in the first moment compared to the 2007, but then the 1997 proceeds as pure, elegant and fresh as a Salon should be. Yes, there are some similarities to the 2007 in terms of finesse, with the linear, mineral and vinous style fortified by the complexity of 21 years of age.” Robert Parker 95/100

Histoire et anecdotes

Salon was founded by the visionary Eugène-Aimé Salon in 1921. Born in Champagne, Aimé Salon began a dynamic career in fur trading. Epicurean, he dreamt of his own Champagne, the nicest that ever existed, a singular and unique wine. He identified the best soils and started the production of the first Blanc de Blanc. At the end of the war, he wanted his friends to enjoy his wine and that is why he founded Salon.
