Estate Notes

Champagne Salon Le Mesnil’s Blanc de Blancs 1995 comes from an excellent Champagne vintage. It was also the first year considered good enough for vintage wines since 1990, and a welcome relief for many growers and Champagne houses.

Salon Le Mesnil was established by Eugene Salon in 1920 and since then only 37 vintages in a century have been produced. In exceptional years grapes are sourced from the finest 20 or so cru vineyards in Le Mesnil sur Oger. Production is very small, sometimes just 20000 bottles per annum and is highly sought after.

Reviews

"This is assertive and grainy in texture, a big-boned Champagne that's powerful and intensely flavored. Biscuit, graphite, honeysuckle, peach and floral notes come together, defined by the firm structure, and last throughout the complex finish." Wine Spectator
