Reviews 97 points Vinous "Rich, opulent and intense, yet also very classic in the Salon house style, the 2002 possesses superb persistence and depth. The radiant vintage has softened the contours and given the wine fabulous depth to match its decidedly powerful personality. At the same time, the 2002 remains quite youthful. (AG)" Jancis Robinson "A touch smoky at first, almost white peppery. Creamy brioche on the palate, superb balance between depth, complexity and vitality. Tense and incredibly persistent. (JH)"

About Salon

A renowned name in the world of Champagne, Salon has established itself as an epitome of singularity. The inception of this distinguished wine can be traced back to one man, Aimé Salon, who desired to create a product reflecting an uncompromised focus on excellence and uniqueness. His vision brought forth a Champagne derived exclusively from a single region, the Côte de Blancs, more precisely, from a single cru, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Salon is crafted solely from Chardonnay, the only varietal utilized, and is exclusively a product of single vintages, entirely devoid of blending.

The first vintage, created in 1911 with a 1905 base, showcased Aimé Salon's enchantment with the distinctive terroir of Le Mesnil. The house remained under Salon's guidance until his demise in 1943, when it was entrusted to his nephew. Later, in 1988, the family-run company, Champagne Laurent-Perrier, secured majority ownership of Champagne Salon, strengthening its legacy.

Nowadays, the direction of Salon is in the hands of Didier Depond, who also oversees its venerable sister house, Champagne Delamotte, one of the oldest in Champagne, established in 1760. Under Depond’s guidance, the houses strive for perfection in their wine production, aiming to produce the finest and most exclusive Champagne. As such, Salon is recognized for its extraordinary balance, intricate complexity, and opulent aromas, garnering the admiration of the most discerning Champagne enthusiasts. It truly stands as a testament to the power of the singular, where precision and adherence to a singular vision can create something genuinely exceptional.
