|Location||France - Le Mesnil sur Oger|
Situated in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, in the Côte des Blancs, the house of Salon has only one Champagne. This Champagne is produced from a one hectare parcel owned by Salon, “Salon’s garden”, and from 19 other smaller parcels in Mesnil-sur-Oger, chosen by Eugène-Aimé Salon at the beginning of the century. The wine produced here is rare on all counts: always a single harvest, single cru, single grape variety and, to complete the singularity in this wine, it is only produced in the best vintages. In the 20th century only 37 vintages were declared, with an average production of 60,000 bottles per declared vintage. At each step of production of Salon, it is a conscious decision to be the best, the most beautiful and the rarest, that allows fervent admirers of Salon to taste a perfectly balanced Champagne, with rich and complex aromas. One can always find nuts, citrus, floral tones, minerals, sometimes smoky, sometimes doughy, according to its age, time, length on the palate and fine, persistent mousse. It is easily compared in its fullness and richness to the great wines of Burgundy. This is what makes Salon unique: simply put, it is a grand vin…with bubbles.
