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. Salon was founded in 1911 by Aime Salon, who decided to create a Chardonnay-based wine instead to rival the Pinot Noir dominated Champagnes prevalent at the time. Today, Salon is only made in only the best vintages – there are no NV Salons, and in non-vintage years the grapes go into Champagne Delamotte instead. Salon Champagne comes from a tiny 1ha parcel owned by Salon in addition to 19 smaller parcels cultivated through agreements with various growers in the Grand Cru classified Le Mesnil vineyard. Salon is also aged in the house cellars for much longer than other Champagnes. It can spend up to a decade in bottle before it is released. This truly is the crowning achievement of Champagne today.
