Utterly Mesmerizing Mesnil:
2007 Salon Blanc de Blancs

Posted by Ian McFadden

Even among top Champagnes, Salon stands out.

It's long been an insider's Champagne loved for its sleek, kinetic minerality, its heartbreaking elegance, and its evolution in the cellar.

Salon is a glorious example of just how transparent and just how utterly compelling Chardonnay can be. Mesnil is one of the greatest places to grow Chardonnay. Salon's laser-focused mineral clarity and outrageous finesse are held up as an exemplar of what Mesnil can achieve.

This edition of the 2007 is one of the great examples of the vintage. There's an energy, a chiseled chalk imbued structure, and above all else, a breeding that is singular. All of this is married to a lovely texture richness. 

When it comes to aging, Salon can hold its own with the best. Bottles of Salon at 20 or 30 years old can be jaw-droppingly pure, elegant, and incredibly fresh. This late release of the 2007 promises age with incredible poise and grace. Before wrapping up, I should emphasize that quantities are very limited.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2007 Salon (Edition 2019) is just starting to show the first signs of aromatic development and nuance, as well as a touch more body than it did upon release. Rich, creamy and ample, with stunning textural richness and freshness, the 2007 is incredibly expressive today, certainly much more so than it was upon release. The 2007 is a dark horse Salon that keeps getting better with time. This is a fabulous showing. Dosage is 6 grams per liter."
