Salon is undoubtedly considered to be the top echelon of Champagne by many wine connoisseurs around the world, yet it is so rare that not many people have had the chance to taste this quintessential Champagne. A tiny house on the Cote des Blanc, they make just only one Cuvee with 100% of its Chardonnay grapes coming from the Grand Cru-class Le Mesnil vineyard in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, and is only made in the best vintages (the other vintages go into Champagne Delamotte); and is aged for relatively longer periods of up to a decade in the bottle before they are released!
Among all the more recent vintages, 2008 was one of the most outstanding vintages ever produced by the house and achieved a full score of 100pts from Antonio Galloni. Aside from the 600cl format that quickly sold out last year, only a total of 8,000 magnum formats were bottled - no standard 75cl - and that's not all, this phenomenal magnum 2008 is not sold as individual bottles but only exclusively in specially designed wooden cases that include two bottles each of Salon 2007, 2006 and 2004. This is a breathtaking collection case that would be an epic buy for any Champagne/wine lover in the year! At HK$56,000 per case and only 1 case available, be quick to let us know if you are interested -
