⭐ Vintage 2004 Critics:

James Suckling 98 points: "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 flavors, 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."... 10/2016

Wine Spectator 94 points: "This elegant Champagne features ripe, up-front aromas and flavors of dried apricot, crystallized honey, and a candied kumquat, giving way on the creamy palate to more subtle notes of raw almond, fleur de sel, and star anise. Mouthwatering, with a chalky underpinning and a lovely, satiny finish. Drink now through 2026. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,500 cases made."...09/2016

Wine Advocate 96+ Points: "The Salon 2004 Blanc de Blancs Brut Le Mesnil follows the famous 2002, and although it comes from a very complicated vintage, it is of excellent quality. It comes from 20 parcels on ten hectares in the Grand Cru. Disgorged in April 2015, the wine shows great purity and chalky intensity, with white mushrooms and lemon flavors. There is great finesse and elegance on the palate, which shows great purity, tension, and minerality. This is a pretty young and persistent Blanc de Blancs with a youthful grip and tension. Great purity and freshness."...06/2016

⭐ Vintage 2006 Critics:

Wine Enthusiast 100 Points (Top 100 Cellar Selections 2017 #11) "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."...Roger Voss 12/2017

Wine Advocate 96+ Points: "The 2006 Salon Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut has a shining silver-golden color, the bubbles are tiny and enormously fine-they probably wouldn't stop rising from the bottom of the glass if you left the wine in it instead of drinking it. There is a fascinating, pure, and fresh bouquet with acacia, chalk, incense, and concentrated lemon flavors on the nose. 2006 is mouth-filling, round and elegant on the palate, and dense and tight and fresh and cleansing, provided with great finesse, mineral complexity, length, and structure. The finish is clear and aromatic, round and well balanced, slightly creamy, very intense, greatly finessed, and truly elegant, with stimulating salinity in the aftertaste. Being restrained and generous at the same time, the 2006 Salon is a great promise rather than the greatest drinking pleasure today. Although I tasted the Salon several times over 36 hours, there is a chalky layer on everything, a taste of a wet sponge, soaked with a lot of chalk for the moment but also ultra-dark chocolate flavors (with at least 80% cacao) and candied lemon and orange zests. The truth or the soul of the 2006 Salon, I guess, is rather indicated in the almost emptied glass, from which ripe, yellow-fleshed fruit aromas (plums!), brioche, marzipan, and floral flavors come out, reflecting a perfect ripeness of fruit as well as the great terroir of Le Mesnil. So, please, don't drink 2006 straight after opening the bottle. Take a good Champagne glass and give the wine a while to breathe and open up. The aging capacity of 2006 should be tremendous here."...Stephen Reinhardt 11/2017

⭐ Vintage 2007 Critics:

Wine Enthusiast 99 Points: "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." 12/2018

James Suckling 97 points: "Such an impressive wine for the detail in every respect. The nose delivers fresh lemon and grapefruit peel, with white, stony minerals and 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."... 10/2017

Wine Advocate 96 Points: "There are pure chalk and lemon juice notes intertwined with perfectly ripe, sunny white and yellow-fleshed fruit expressions (even hints of pineapples) on the bright, fresh, subtle but most of all highly elegant and nobly expressive nose. Altogether, that makes the 2007 Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut an outstanding Salon that already shows its class without any reservation but also any compromises to its refined and terroir-driven style. Compared to the powerful and structured 2006 that, from my memories, showed wet chalk flavors but almost no fruit in its youth, the weightless and delicate 2007 is a coolish, elegant, and smoky gentleman dressed in a white tie and silk hat-Max Raabe singing Berlin chansons from the 1920s! The performance on the palate is pure yet concentrated, fresh and linear, very elegant and perfectly balanced, but most of all, it is extremely fine and stimulating! There is a chalky-dusty texture in the aftertaste that makes this a great Salon with sublime finesse and elegance. Lovely lemon flavors are displayed on the pure, fresh, and concentrated finish. The radiant 2007 Salon is one of the greatest Champagnes I have had from this vintage. 57,000 bottles produced. Tasted from lot L93 SQ 28218 U in November 2018."... Stephan Reinhardt 11/2018

Antonio Galloni/Vinous 96 Points: "The 2007 Salon is gorgeous. Weightless, delicate, and understated, 2007 is all class. Today, 2007 reminds me of 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 2007 easy to drink with minimal cellaring. Next to 2006, 2007 is quite a bit fresher and more delineated, with none of the exuberance, power of tropically-leaning overtones found in its younger sibling. At this stage, 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." 07/2018

Wine Spectator 94 points: "A fresh and elegant Champagne, with a light, pleasing plushness to the mousse. This weaves subtle notes of fleshy mirabelle plum and nectarine fruit, preserved lemon and pastry dough with a chalky, minerally underpinning that lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2028."...09/2017
