Salon, Cuvee ‘S’ Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Brut 2012

RRP POA

Pinot Noir was the king of this climatically challenging vintage, so Salon wasn’t promising us a release early on. The house changed its mind and has come up with something instantly rewarding and generous. Bright, sweetly fruity nose on the tropical side, with lemon, jasmine and orange blossom. The palate has volume yet also a firm backbone of brisk acidity. The chalky mineral notions come forward on the long, intense and dry finish.
