The 1997 Brut Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil possesses striking detail and depth in a surprisingly generous style for this wine. An inner core of perfumed varietal fruit emerges from the glass, along with expressive aromas of smoke, minerals, mint, flowers and licorice, all of which are woven together with extraordinary elegance. The finish is long, sweet and sublime. Everything about this wine speaks to elegance, but in 1997 Salon is also a pleasure to drink young, unlike the 1996 which remains painfully backward.

One of the most eminent wines from 97. This wine is fantastically caressing and silky with a springlike, seductive grace. The sublime aroma breathes of lime blossom, lime and a hint of brioche. The flavour is lighter and more directly accessible than usual, but at the same time tremendously refined and crystal clear. A much better choice than the 96 for many years to come. I tasted the first bottle in a very unusual place with Didier Depond. At Ferrari in Maranella!

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Subtle ginger, floral and citrus aromas build to flavors of lemon pie, honey and hazelnut. Elegant and refined, with a firm underlying structure and a long aftertaste. 1,667 cases imported.

Sensational wine. Notes of honey and lime. Delicate and yet full of flavor. Enjoyed it while celebrating my husband's 50th birthday.

Tasting on the premise of Salon-Delamotte. Light gold in color. Slow legs. Lemon, Lime, Pear, Honeydew, Mineral, Acacia with a lot of white flowers. Medium/Full bodied. Silky texture. Medium finish. 1996 is better than 1997. But 1996 needs time to mature, so you'd drink 1997 before 1996. By the way, I tasted other champagne of Delamotte and I preferred Delamotte 1999 Blanc de Blancs to Salon 1997.
