More Vintages and Sizes of Salon - Le Mesnil:
International Wine Cellar
Author: Josh Raynolds
Issue: Issue 159
Bright yellow-gold. Deeply pitched, pungent aromas of candied lemon, pear skin, anise, buttered toast and smoky lees, with notes of ginger and white flowers adding lift. Densely packed yet vibrant, showing impressive power and clarity to its mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Expands on the finish but maintains its focus, picking up iodine and bitter lime notes that linger impressively. A more vibrant rendition of Salon than the 1997 version, but with a bit less concentration than the 1996. This should be a slow ager.

There's a sense of finesse to this Champagne, which offers a creamy texture and seamlessly integrated structure,
with subtly layered flavors of ripe white peach, black raspberry fruit, lemon meringue pie, pickled ginger and
blanched almond. Sleek and elegant.
