Last 6 bottles of the Champagne Salon Cuvee S 2007

Last 6 bottles of the Champagne Salon Cuvee S 2007

Incredible Champagne from Salon 
Last 6 bottles
 
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.
 
We only have 6 bottles of the glorious 2007 left from our allocation.

Further complicating matters for Salon lovers is the advice that the 2008 vintage will only be bottled in Magnum (and released sometime in the future) and that it is likely that no Salon will be produced in 2009, 2010, 2011 or 2012. There will be a serious shortage!

Stock up before it is too late!

Salon NV Label
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.

Long-Depaquit Chablis label
 
Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis 2016
Just $385.00 a Case
Only 3 Cases Left
 
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.
Wine Spectator: This is lush, featuring ample flavors of white peach and lemon verbena, with a hint of stone. Balanced, leaving a piquant citrus note on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 90 Points
If you are looking for a value white for summer drinking you'd be hard pressed to find anything better than this Chablis.
