Estate Notes

Champagne Salon Le Mesnil’s Blanc de Blancs 1996 was purchased in its original wooden case and comes from an excellent Champagne vintage; a warm, dry summer being the key to its success and grapes were exceptionally ripe with great concentration and acidity to balance.

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

"A deep, vinous style, with understated power and grace. The lemon verbena, toast and honey aromas and flavors are propelled by the well-integrated structure and fine bubbles. There's just a hint of greenness, marking its youthful impetuosity. Has great length." Wine Spectator
