Salon
Le Mesnil Edition 20 Years 1997

Directed by Aimé Salon until his death in 1943, the Maison was then left to his nephew. In 1988, the family-owned Maison Laurent-Perrier became the majority shareholder in Champagne Salon. Today, the Maison Salon, along with its old neighbour and sister, Maison Delamotte - the fifth oldest Maison of Champagne, founded in 1760 - is run by a man, Didier Depond.

Consecrated by critics and drinkers, Salon with its great elegance, power and absolute longevity continues to be a reference among the icons of Blanc de Blancs. The wine is made from a single Cru, Grand Cru Mesnil sur Oger, from a single variety, Chardonnay, and made in extremely limited quantities and only when the vintage is judged excellent by the criteria of the Maison.

The 20 Years Edition by Salon Le Mesnil 1997 was a wonderful idea of its president Didier Depond: only 2,017 bottles rested on their yeasts for 19 years. This is the first time that the Maison Salon has released a late dégorgement on the market. Brilliant golden colour, extremely fine bubbles, deep aroma of candied citrus fruits, in particular lemon and bergamot, complex and rich bouquet: minerality, fruit, spices. In the mouth very good aromatic depth for this extraordinary Salon 1997!


Winemaker

Salon

Salon is a small producer of Champagne Blanc de Blancs, well appreciated by the critic. Salon, together with Delamotte, is part of the Laurent-Perrier Group since 1989. It is considered one of the best Champagne on the market. The company Salon was founded by Aimé Salon Eugène in the 20th century. Salon was convinced that the Chardonnay grapes from the region  Mesnil-sur-Oger were able to produce wine with high standards of fineness and elegance, without needing Pinot Noir or Meunier. Shortly after, with the Vintage 1921, Salon began to produce a unique lot of Chardonnay, which was only offered to friends. After the depart of  Eugène Aimé Salon in 1943; his sister inherited the company, which was later sold to Laurent-Perrier in 1989. Salon is also part of the Maison Salon-Delamotte. Like all Blanc de Blancs, it is produced with Chardonnay grapes, grown in Mesnil-sur-Oger, classified as Grand Cru, where another famous property is located, Jardin de Salon. This parcel is only one hectare large, which means that grapes used to produced Champagne Salon are bought from 20 different wine growers within the territory of Mesnil-sur-Oger. The vines have an average age between 25 and 40 years. This Champagne is produced with the brand Salon, exclusively in exceptional years, more or less 4 times every ten years. When Salon is not produced, grapes are used to produce Champagne under the brand Delamotte. The Champagne Salon firstly ferments in steel tanks and then rests in bottles with yeasts for over 10 years before it is sold.
