The 2006 vintage of Salon Champagne has finally been released!
Being only produced in exceptional years, made from 100% Chardonnay grapes that are farmed in the Le Mesnil-sur-Oger vineyards (which is one of the greatest and most distinctive crus of the Cote des Blancs), every release is highly anticipated by not only Champagne lovers but everyone who knows and loves wines! 2006 was a worrisome year - cold and rainy in August days - everyone thought that would be the end of the vintage, but came September with cool mornings and glorious days all through til harvest time in October. The grapes eventually reached optimum ripeness, giving musts with magnificent sugar levels balanced by fine acidities.
Though there are no scores yet for 2006, each and every vintage of Salon Champagne has shown pure class, exquisite fruit and super-soft mousse-like beads and we expect no less from 2006. From the winemaker themselves, 2006 gives notes of white flowers, citrus zest, lightly toasted brioche upon opening. After a slight while, the glass fills with autumnal tones, fresh hazelnuts, praline, dried apricot, ripe yellow fruits, all accompanied by never-ending bubbles...
