The exclusive of all exclusives in the world of Champagne. Being born out of Grand Cru Champagne vineyards in Mesnil-onSegur, Salon is still only made in the truly exceptional years. Only 38 out of the last 90 years has the world been treated to "the finesse of silk, persistance, innate depth and power" that is Salon.
L. Aubry Fils Brut Premier Cru is an austere, structured Champagne with a rich grain element interwoven with cherry, apple, wildflower and almond notes. This is a distinctive, expertly crafted sparkling wine that will vastly enhance a meal of albacore or oysters. Though the blend is carefully adapted from year to year.
45% Pinot Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 5% Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Fromenteau.
An subtle nose with plenty of fine autolysis aromas of fresh bread and sweetly fragrant yeasty notes, plus some gentle spice and chalky notes. The palate unleashes beautiful wild strawberry fruit flavors, super fresh, fleshy and pure. Great balance and depth. Drink now. (94 points James Suckling)
45% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier
The NV Brut Special Cuvee is fabulous. Hints of pears, pastry crust and hazelnut lead to an expansive core of fruit. There is plenty of the signature Bollinger oxidative style in this rich, enveloping Champagne. Once again the Special Cuvee is one of the best Champagnes in its price range.
60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Meunier
