Winemaker Notes:

The robe of the champagne Salon 2002 is of a very pale yellow in which appear reflections of delicate pale green hues. On the palate, the attack is immediate, little by little revealing a firm yet refined texture, thanks to a gracious effervescence with fine bubbles and a creamy foam. Aromas express all their richness unveiling flavors of brioche and soft part of the bread, along with scents of white flowers, white fruits and almonds. The finale remains long and enhanced by citrus hints.

Tasting Notes:

"The 1999 Brut Blanc de Blancs is impenetrable. This is a massive, full-bodied Salon that totally saturates the palate with fruit. Neither as austere or pointed as the 1996, nor as open as the 1997, instead the 2002 comes across as big, rich and powerful. There is little in the way of flavor or aromatic development, and it may be some time before any real complexity develops in bottle. Today it looks like the wine?s best days are well off into the future." Parker Points - 95
