Since inception, Salon has been a wine defined by singularity. It is a single terroir. Côte des Blancs; a single cru. Le Mesnil; a single variety. Chardonnay and from a single year. that of a great vintage. The 1997 is complex and ethereal with hints of acacia blossom, green apple, hazelnut and warm bread. The palate is all at once exuberant yet tensile and delicate yet powerful – the epitome of balanced complexity.
