Description

A legendary vintage champagne with wonderful finesse and precision

The estate

Champagne Salon is the creation of a man who loved champagne: Aimé Salon. Fascinated by the Mesnil terroir, this daring man created the champagne of his dreams, a Blanc de Blancs that is quite simply exceptional. "The champagne of one man, Aimé Salon, of one terroir, the Côte des Blancs, of one cru, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, of one grape variety, Chardonnay, of one year, that of a great vintage." In the words of the House, we understand that the story of this champagne has all the makings of an adventure novel. And with good reason: Champagne Salon came to life in 1905, but it wasn't until 1920 that this audacious character revealed his sublime and mysterious creation to the rest of the world. Today, Maison Salon has joined the Laurent-Perrier group and now shares its ambitions and resources with Maison Delamotte, both managed by Didier Depond.

The wine

Only produced in the best years, this Blanc de Blancs Champagne is as confidential as it is exceptional. Demanding and precise, the wines are kept in the cellar for an average of ten years before revealing all their grandeur.

The vintage

Despite a cold winter and spring, the vines did not suffer any frosts in 2013. The budburst took place at the end of April under abundant rainfall, which lasted until full flowering at the beginning of July. Despite a hot summer, sporadic thunderstorms and slow ripening of the grapes in October, hail damage was minimal. Despite the bad weather, the 2013 harvest was excellent, at 13,000 kg/ha, with the Chardonnays standing out for their balance and acidity.

The vineyard

This champagne comes from the one-hectare plot known as "Le Jardin Salon," and nineteen other small plots in Mesnil-sur-Oger, carefully selected by Aimé Salon at the beginning of the 20th century.

Grape variety

Chardonnay (100%)
