Salon

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.

Vinous (95)

The 1976 Salon combined elements of the taut house style with an extra dimension of fatness from bottle age. The wine was rich and energetic, with tons of length and pretty notes of tar, smoke and licorice that lingered on the finish.

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.

Salon Le Mesnil 2004 (1x150cl)

James Suckling (98)

2004 Salon weaves together immense complexity with stunning purity and makes instant impact on the nose with fresh-baked pastry and brioche, chalky minerals, fresh white mushrooms, cucumber, lemon curd and striking lemon and lime fruits. The palate has an almost smoky mineral thread while toasty autolytic flavours build and expand through the mid-palate, opening to grapefruit and ripe white-peach flavors, lemon sorbet and very lightly grilled hazelnuts to close. This is an impressively layered Blanc de Blancs in which bright acidity supports the flavorsome, concentrated and fleshy texture in seamless balance. A great Salon that's very composed and complex in every respect; it's a classically styled vintage in which this legendary Champagne has excelled. It will be a fascinatingly complex Champagne with further age. Drink now and for 10+ years.
