Incredible Champagne from Salon 
 
In the scheme of not only Champagne, but of wine in general, Salon sits in a very privileged place. A jewel in the Côte des Blancs with the sole mission to produce one single cuvée.
 
Salon Cuvee S is only produced in exceptional vintages and just 41 vintages have been deemed worthy in the years since creation in 1911 by the late Aimé Salon.
 
For lovewrs of Salon we have some good and bad news.
 
The bad news is that it is unlikely that Salon will produce a Champagne from the 2009, 2010, 2011 or 2012 vintages. Further complicating matters for Salon lovers is the advice that the small 2008 vintage will only be bottled in Magnum and released sometime in the future (and I imagine at a huge price). A hard to find Champagne at any time this means there is going to be a real shortage of Salon for the next 5 years.
 
The good news is that we have secured 12 more bottles of the wonderful 2007 vintage. The bottles are on the way and will arrive soon.
 
So if you would like a few bottles to last you for the next 5 or so years I urge you to grab some 2007 whilst still available.It is an incredible Champagne.

The Wine Enthusiast: 
This legendary Champagne, only produced in exceptional years, comes from the village of Le Mesnil in the Côte des Blancs. It is made from 100% Chardonnay and aged for many years before release. Its minerality, concentration and beautiful fruit are still astonishingly young and deserve further aging. Drink from 2020. *Cellar Selection* .  99 Points
 
James Suckling MW:
Such an impressive wine for the detail in every respect. The nose delivers fresh lemon and grapefruit peel, together with white, stony minerals and very, very fresh and light pastry notes. Some grilled hazelnuts, too. The palate is super fine, supple and crisp with attractive, dry, salty minerals on the finish that holds super long, fine and focused. Elegant citrus and light brioche to close. Drink or hold. 97 Points

Wine and Spirits:  This latest release of Salon announces itself with energy and leaves with freshness. It comes from a vintage marked by a cool, cloudy August that delayed ripening; after the vines recovered in September, they yielded this delicate chardonnay, completely saturated with flavor. It comes from 20 parcels in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, a selection established by the founder, Aimé Salon, in the early 1900s, including one estate parcel of 2.5 acres. Other than exclaiming on the wine's delicious flavors, our panel was seduced by its texture, describing it in variations of silk, satin or chalk and velvet whiteness. It has a presence-a remarkable infusion of chalk soil-that sets it apart. 97 Points

Antonio Galloni, Vinous:: The 2007 Salon is gorgeous. Weightless, delicate and understated, the 2007 is all class. Today, the 2007 reminds me of the 2004 in its bright, citrus and floral-infused profile, but with a bit more creaminess, mid-palate depth and softer contours, all of which will make the 2007 easy to drink with minimal cellaring. Next to the 2006, the 2007 is quite a bit fresher and more delineated, with none of exuberance, power of tropically-leaning overtones found in its younger sibling. At this stage, the 2007 is a bit inward and closed in on itself. Then again, it is Salon. This is another terrific showing from Salon and the team headed by President Didier Depond. Dosage is 5 grams per liter.

Bouley vs Buffet Dinner header

You've got to love VOLNAY. Bouley vs Buffet 2016 Volnay Dinner at Ryne. Tomorrow
Last 2 seats
 
Join us for a romp throught the Premier Cru Vineyards of Volnay
 
Volnay - it's always been known for its aromatics and finesse. In the past it was considered a light wine but in recent years we have seen a renaissance. Great 21st century Volnay still retains its elegance but has much more concentration and interest.
 
The 2016 vintage universally produced the best Volnay I have seen. The delightful fruit of the vintage suits the Volnay terroir and pretty much every Premier Cru Volnay I have tasted has left me with a positive impression. The wines are quite simply delicious.
 
To understand Burgundy you need to compare and discuss. What better way to do it than with a comparative tasting of like wines from two producers? Our  You've got to love VOLNAY: Bouley vs Buffet 2016 Volnay Dinner features 11 Premier Crus from these two producers. All of the wines are from 2016 and the final bracket of 4 will be a direct comparison of Volnay's big guns - Champans and Clos des Chenes. I might be sneaky and serve these four wines blind.
 
Before we get to those wines we'll look at 7 other Premier Crus including two Monopoles - one from each domaine. We'll also taste the Bouley Santenots which lies entirely in the boundaries of Meursault yet is always labeled as Volnay (ah, those French!). This will give a picture of the varying terroirs of Volnay and the different style of each domaine.
 
Our Burgundy Dinners are designed not just to be enjoyable but to increase your understanding of the world's greatest wine region. To assist we will provide extensive tasting notes and welcome discussion and questions. So if you would like to try some wonderful 2016 Premier Crus and pick up a few pointers along the way come and join us.
 
The dinner will be at one of our favourite venues - Ryne - in north Fitzroy.
