The elegant Salon Le Mesnil 2004

The elegant Salon Le Mesnil 2004

The small but mythical champagne house Salon has released their Le Mesnil 2004 vintage earlier this year.## With only 46.000 bottles of the 2004 vintage produced the harvest was even for Salon quite low.

 

Since we are all huge lovers of this champagne we couldn’t wait to taste the wine, even though we knew that the champagne would still be very young. 

 

After opening the bottle the champagne shows hints of the chalky grounds. The champagne is very elegant and offers a palate of lemon and oyster shell. Full of elegance however it will even more evolve over the next 10 years.

BOW 8.5/10

We still have several bottles available:
