Salon Le Mesnil Limited Edition 2008 Oenotheque Assortment Case

$93,800

Per assortment case price.

Under no doubt is 2008 one of the most extraordinary and sought after vintages in Champagne. Salon crowns it with their unique and legendary Salon 2008. Salon has always been synonymous with the highest quality and only produces in the best vintages and also in extremely small quantities. The president of Salon – Monsieur Didier Depond – has made a drastic decision regarding the long awaited Salon 2008 with a distribution exclusively in magnum format and a production limited to only 8,000 bottles!

The magnums of 2008 Salon are sold exclusively in a rare collector’s case. Monsieur Depond defined 2008 as a dream vintage comparable only to the great 1982 vintage – with almost indefinite aging potential.

 

The precious case, beautifully crafted, contains a Magnum of Salon 2008 and two bottles for each vintage 2004, 2006 and 2007 in their ‘2019 Edition’, being late disgorged in January 2019 (along with the Salon 2008 Magnum) with a lower sugar dosage than the traditional releases.

Case contains:

1 Magnum of 2008 Salon Cuvee ‘S’ Le Mesnil; 100 points, Robert Parker
2 Bottles of 2007 Salon Cuvee ‘S’ Le Mesnil; 96 points, Robert Parker
2 Bottles of 2006 Salon Cuvee ‘S’ Le Mesnil; 95 points, Robert Parker 
2 Bottles of 2004 Salon Cuvee ‘S’ Le Mesnil; 96 points Robert Parker

Description

Salon is a story of the singular. One champagne of one variety from one vintage sourced from one region (Côte des Blancs) and one village (Le Mesnil-sur-Oger): there is only one Salon. Founded in 1911, Champagne Salon is also the creation of just one man, Eugène-Aimé Salon. A Champagne connoisseur enchanted and then seduced by the terroir of Le Mesnil, he created Champagne’s first Blanc de Blancs at the beginning of the 20th century: originally only for personal consumption! The first known vintage was 1905 and since then, just forty more have been released.

The grapes used in the Salon blend come from ten hectares and twenty plots and the concentratedly fruity style of the House derives from their super-concentrated yield of very old vines. Purchased by Laurent-Perrier in 1989, today they share a Cellar Master and vineyard with next-door neighbour and sister company, Champagne Delamotte. Salon is a true rarity, with a maximum annual production of 60,000 bottles that invariably disappear into the cellars of collectors. With only ten employees (six in the cellar and four in the office) and riddling performed by hand, attention to detail is the key to Salon’s prowess.
