Champagne Salon Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs 1996 / 1999



Salon 是獨一無二的香檳,所有製作重點都在於單一。它是單一個人 Aimé Salon 在單一產區 Côte de Blancs;只來自一塊田 le Mesnil-sur-Oger;只用一款葡萄 Chardonnay;只來自一個年和沒有混釀。

一種葡萄、一塊田、一個年分,Salon Le Mesnil (第一年分為 1905) 由 Aimé Salon 創立,他是一位追求完美又擁有一顆熱心的人。他對香檳的感覺就是平衡和典雅,一瓶充滿誘人香氣而爆發的香檳,充滿性格,但又細致,繼而誕生了 Salon Le Mesnil。只在精心挑選的年分生產數千瓶,並在十多年後才上市。這瓶 1996 年,可稱為極罕有產品,更可媲美 1928 年這個里程碑。



Chardonnay 100%

淡黃色,帶有綠色反映。Salon 香檳的主席說:「雪山上的太陽光線」。幼細、有動力的氣它既有年輕人的電力衝勁顯示的複雜性和有層次的香香氣。



Salon is a unique Champagne. All the emphasis in the production of this exceptional wine is on the singular. It was originally the product of one single man, Aimé Salon; from one single region, the Côte de Blancs; from one single cru, le Mesnil-sur-Oger; from one single grape variety, Chardonnay; and from one single vintage, with no blending whatsoever.

One grape variety, one cru, one year – Salon Le Mesnil (first vintage 1905) was created by Aimé Salon, a passionate gentleman obsessed with perfection. His idea of Champagne was to fashion a masterpiece of balance and elegance, an explosive Champagne full of seductive aromas, full of character, yet subtle: Thus was born Salon Le Mesnil. Only a few thousand bottles are made in carefully selected vintages and offered for sale some ten years later.
The 1996 vintage – at the top of this rare, elite collection – is being compared to the legendary 1928..

Tasting Notes:
Salon Le Mesnil 1996 is a pale yellow wine with hints of green, “as bright as the morning sun light on the highest snow caps” says Didier Depond, chairman of Champagne Salon Le Mesnil. With fine, active bubbles, it has both the electricity and impertinence of youth, yet shows complexity and layers of aromas.
On the palate, Salon Le Mesnil displays a remarkable subtlety of flavors with touches of green apples, fresh citrus – lemon and grapefruit – building into mellow hints of ripe pear and kiwi.
