The 2008 vintage in Champagne is one of the most thrilling young vintages that we've tasted. It is pure, harmonious, and has a beautifully energetic structure. We simply love the vintage.

The Louis Salmon boasts an ultra refined diamond-like purity and detail. It is very finessed and classy as one would expect coming from Billecart-Salmon and some of the Côte des Blancs top grand crus - Cramant, Mesnil, and Chouilly.

Louis Salmon was BIllecart-Salmon's first cellar master and the 2008 is the first edition of this cuvée. Antonio Galloni highlights in his note below that this was bottled as vintage Blanc de Blancs in the past.

The 2008 vintage provided Billecart-Salmon with the perfect platform to showcase their regal and delicate style. The Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Louis Salmon is a glorious example of their success.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media:

"The 2008 Brut Blanc de Blancs Louis Salmon (formerly the vintage Blanc de Blancs) and named after the maison’s first cellar master, is fabulous. Rich and ample, the 2008 is beautifully resonant in the glass. It offers up an enticing mélange of lemon confit, marzipan, dried flowers and spice. It’s a terrific 2008, especially for readers looking for a relatively affordable option to some of the super high-flyers in this celebrated vintage."
