One of the storied Champagne houses, first formed in 1905, Salon has produced another stunning release to add to their long list of legendary wines. This Champagne is produced from a one-hectare parcel owned by Salon: "Salon’s garden", along with 19 other smaller parcels in Mesnil-sur-Oger, which were chosen by Aimé Salon at the beginning of the century. The 2007 'Cuvée S' was given 5 g/l dosage. Golden in color, this fabulous bottling displays remarkable salinity on the nose, showing overt diatomaceous earth. White rose, with Challah bread, and Gravenstein apple aromatics complete this outstanding vintage Champagne. The mousse is thick and viscous, as it beautifully coats the mid-palate. Lazer focused and intense, marked by flavors lemon oil, nectarine rind, sour apple and suggestions of sourdough bread flavors all brightly align. This is a age-worthy Champagne which will likely need another two plus years of bottle age before it begins to show its best.
