Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

Toffee, earth and white chocolate on the nose, plus a strong suggestion of terroir. Concentrated and very rich, with a deep note of beurre blanc and a strong lemony flavor. The acidity carries the flavors through to a long, slightly sweet/sour finish. Like the '83, this wine is impressively endowed but comes across as somewhat disjointed.

Richard Juhlin | Rating: 96

It took a few years before the '82 really found itself. Now it is wonderfully harmonious, if a little uneven from bottle to bottle. A classic Salon with brilliant acidity and an exceptionally dry aftertaste of lanolin and butter. Still buttery, minty and very acidic. A hint of oxidation might disturb some people.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Every time we taste this wine we love it even more. High volume and high intensity, they pulled out all the stops to get the most fruit and vanilla flavors, fine acidity and a long finish. A Cellar Selection in December 1991. At its peak. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.

About This Producer


With production focused on just one champagne, consistent premier quality is the necessary mantra. Such is the situation for Salon, located in the tiny, quiet village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the highly-vaunted Cote des Blancs region of Champagne. The champagne hails from a 2.5-acre vineyard wholly owned by Salon and from 19 smaller parcels within Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, all of which are Grand Cru vineyards that receive the rarest of ratings - 100%.
