Product Description

RP99 "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." WK Aug 2019
Salon Cuvee 'S' Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Brut
Originally conceived as a private label for personal consumption by its founder, Eugene-Aime Salon, this Champagne house was revolutionary in its concept: produced from a single grape variety, a single village and a single vintage at a time when the region's wines were typically blends in every sense, Salon was a contradiction.
