Today we present a range of vintages including the 2006, 2004 and 2002 in Magnum! These are not easy to find! 

Be quick, stocks are very limited.

Salon Cuvee S Blanc de Blancs 2006
$895.00 a 750ml Bottle
$1995.00 a 1500ml MAGNUM

Salon NV Label
Wine Enthusiast: 
This new release from a great vintage for Chardonnay in Champagne is a perfect blanc de blancs, showing a wealth of intensity from the crisp, chalky, mineral tones to the perfumed apple notes. The aromas hint at developing toastiness that adds depth and complexity. The wine is still young and it will age for years. Drink from 2020. 100 Points

Vinous, Antonio Galloni: The 2006 Salon is a very rich wine, almost uncharacteristically so. Deep and exotic the 2006 exudes richness in all of its dimensions, with myriad inflections of sumptuous fruit that fill out its ample, large-scaled frame. Today, the 2006 is surprisingly accessible for a young Salon, but it needs time to shed some baby fat. At times, the 2006 recalls the 2002, but it appears to have more phenolic intensity and overall structure. Even with all of its flamboyance and pure volume, the 2006 retains quite a bit of energy and freshness. I imagine it will be a fascinating, utterly compelling Champagne to 
ense complexity with stunning purity and makes instant impact on the nose with fresh-baked pastry and brioche, chalky minerals, fresh white mushroom, cucumber, lemon curd and striking lemon and lime citrus fruits. The palate has an almost smoky mineral thread, toasty autolytic flavors build and expand through the mid-palate, opening to grapefruit and ripe white peach flavours, lemon sorbet and very lightly grilled hazelnuts to close. This is an impressively layered Blanc de Blancs in which bright acidity supports the flavorsome, concentrated and fleshy texture in seamless balance. A great Salon, very composed and complex in every respect, a classically styled vintage in which this legendary Champagne has excelled. It will be a fascinatingly complex Champagne with further age. Drink now and for 10+ years. 98 Points

Salon Cuvee S Blanc de Blancs 2004
$1950.00 a 1500ml MAGNUM

Salon NV Label James Suckling MW: 
2004 Salon weaves together immense complexity with stunning purity and makes instant impact on the nose with fresh-baked pastry and brioche, chalky minerals, fresh white mushroom, cucumber, lemon curd and striking lemon and lime citrus fruits. The palate has an almost smoky mineral thread, toasty autolytic flavors build and expand through the mid-palate, opening to grapefruit and ripe white peach flavours, lemon sorbet and very lightly grilled hazelnuts to close. This is an impressively layered Blanc de Blancs in which bright acidity supports the flavorsome, concentrated and fleshy texture in seamless balance. A great Salon, very composed and complex in every respect, a classically styled vintage in which this legendary Champagne has excelled. It will be a fascinatingly complex Champagne with further age.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous:  The 2004 Salon has been superb each time I have tasted it over the last year or so. Bright, tense and crystalline, with all of the energy that is typical of both Salon and the vintage in the Côte des Blancs, the 2004 bristles with superb precision and cool, pulsating minerality. The 2004 spent a dozen years on its lees. Over the last six months or so, it has gradually begun to open up, but it is very much a wine for the cellar. Two thousand four is remembered as a vintage with record high yields. Salon (and Delamotte) did a terrific job in keeping the vines well balanced. Production was just 46,000 bottles, as opposed to the 60,000 or so that is more typical. Chef de Caves Michel Fauconnet opted for a low dosage of just 4 grams per liter. This is a tremendous showing.

Salon Cuvee S Blanc de Blancs 2002
$2150.00 a 1500ml MAGNUM

Salon NV Label
Wine Enthusiast:  The 35th and most recent vintage of Salon since the house was founded in 1905 is memorable and magnificent. Made only from Chardonnay grown in the Grand Cru village of Les Mesnil-sur-Oger, it combines intense minerality, a crisp textured core and the beginnings of maturity. The depths of this wine, with its layers of fruit and steeliness, are superb. Even after 12 years, it still needs to age further. Drink from 2018. 100 Points
James Suckling Tasting Report: The 2002 Salon is phenomenal quality. (...) It is a subtle and intense Champagne that shows complex character of lilac, minerals, sliced lemon, apple and white pepper. It is full body and dense yet racy and agile with a lightness and freshness. It has a gloriously long finish. It changes every moment in the glass. It has such clarity. It's magnificient to drink now, but shows great texture and structure for aging. 99 Points
Salon Cuvee S Blanc de Blancs 1999
$895.00 a 750ml Bottle

Salon NV Label
The Wine Advocate: 
The Salon 1999 Brut Le Mesnil - disgorged already in 2011 and dosed with a pretty typical six grams of residual sugar - displays faintly fusil and quarry dust notes as well as hickory nut, almond, walnut and toasted wheat piquancy on the nose. Polished and subtly creamy in texture yet brightly juicy with apple and lemon, this displays an uncanny sense of lift and refinement, perfectly complementing the honeysuckle and heliotrope perfume that waft inner-mouth. You could lose yourself in the ineffability of this wine's floral diversity and in its resonantly nut and grain low tones. Hints of apple pip lend subtle additional piquancy on a long and at once soothing as well as stimulating finish, with suggestions of oyster liquor becoming prominent as the bottle stands open for a few minutes, and serving to milk the salivary glands for all that they are worth. Follow this for at least a decade.  95 Points

Jancis Robinson: 
Disgorged spring 2014 with a dosage of 5-6 g/l. Gentle first impression,
almost a touch floral - lavender? herbal? - spicy and biscuity too. Broader 
than the 2002 and less intense, not as concentrated on the mid palate but a 
little broader, less tightly wound, as you would expect. Still vey finely
balanced and creamily textured. Amazingly long finish. 18/20

Antonio Galloni, Vinous: The 1999 Salon, tasted from magnum, is the first wine in which fresh, primary fruit flavors are replaced by more mature notes. Lemon oil, light honey and chamomile flesh out in a radiant, expressive Champagne loaded with class. Here it is the wine's texture and breadth that impress above all else. The 1999 is a fabulous transition to the older wines in this tasting, as it is both youthful and complex. 
(Drink between 2014-2029). 95 Points

Dampt Bourgogne Chevalier NV label
Gold Medal Paris 2018
Vignoble Dampt Bourgogne Tonnerre Chevalier d'Eon Blanc 2016
Gold Medal at Paris
The 2016 vintage of Chevalier d'Eon, made from 100% Chardonnay, is a stunner! It is made entirely in stainless steel tank which accentuates the freshness of fruit. There are ripe notes of apple, pear, and lemon meringue on the nose. There is a great balance of fruit, minerality, and acidity on the palate. The fruit is definitely the dominant flavor-- ripe Anjou pear and beautiful flowers, blended just perfectly with the subtle clay and limestone minerality. The acidity maintains the liveliness and vibrancy of the wine on the palate from its intense start to its long finish. This would be your perfect pairing for oysters, seared scallops or baked white fish.  
Darren Harris:  Not surprisingly with quite a lot of Chablis character - mineral, oysters shells etc. Lovely ripe fruit and a long savoury finish. A excellent everyday drinker. Awarded a Gold Medal at Paris in 2018 - rather impressive for a wine at this price!

Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis 2016
Just $385.00 a Case

The 2016 vintage in Chablis was decimated by hail and frost. The worst affected areas produced no grapes at all. Domaine Long-Depaquit registered a deficit of between 30% and 80% depending on the vineyard with their Chablis Villages producing only 30% of normal volume. The low cropping level has created wines of exceptional character.
If you are looking for a value white for summer drinking you'd be hard pressed to find anything better than this Chablis.
