The Salon 1997 has got a sparking pale yellow robe showing nacred hues. On the nose the wine shows an incredible complexity. An extreme minerality dominates through notes of white flowers, hawthorn and acacia, conveying a great finesse to the wine. On the palate, the texture appears to be silky, with a caressing and delicate freshness. With all this harmony and purity, the attacks stands quite apart and surprises as it allows the expression of fine bubbles through a voluptuous foam. In the end of the tasting, aromas of brioche crust appear along with notes of granny smith apple and hazelnut, underlining the finale

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Walnut oil and smoky suggestions of struck flint in the nose of Salon's 1997 Brut Le Mesnil are joined by intimation of the fresh lime and grapefruit that go on to inform its silken yet vivacious and refreshing palate with metaphorically cooling and sorbet-like refreshment. There is a vivid, hauntingly long, wave-like and buoying exchange of chalk and oyster shell, kelp and iodine with luscious citrus against a backdrop of creamy richness. This superb Salon - slightly more restrained than its 1999 counterpart, but no less intriguing or alluring - will merit at least a decade of cellaring.
