Salon Blanc De Blanc le Mesnil Champagne 1999 Vintage 75cl

Salon Blanc De Blanc le Mesnil Champagne 1999 Vintage is an incredibly fine and rare Champagne produced from 100% Chardonnay grapes grown in the chalk soils of Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger in the Côte des Blancs region of Champagne. This is the 37th Vintage and the last one of the 20th century and is complex, focussed and elegant accurately expressing the specific vintage conditions. 

This Champagne is produced from a one-hectare parcel owned by Salon: "Salon’s garden", and from 19 other smaller parcels in Mesnil-sur-Oger, chosen by Aimé Salon at the beginning of the century. The wines are cellared in the bottle for an average of 10 years, gaining in complexity and finesse. Nestled in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, 100% Chardonnay and 100% grand cru, this is the king of Champagne vineyards. It is here that the most profound expression of Chardonnay's delicate freshness truly comes to the fore, where magnanimous nature offers a wine that is purity itself.

  • Cured Meat

Grape: Chardonnay
1999 saw an extremely warm growing season with an early spring that was followed by storm and hail. June and July saw some rain but equally impressive spells of heat leading up to the harvest, therefore, producing wines of high alcohol content and low acidity.

Lively, fruity aromas of citrus and grapefruit that lead to a palate of fine, persistent and creamy bubbles. Sophisticated flavours of brioche, white-fleshed fruits, blossom and hints of bitter almonds continue to a lingering finish and aftertaste of crystalline citrus.
Perfect with oysters, caviar or sea bass with truffle risotto. Also an excellent partner for Parma or Iberico ham, parmesan cheese and grilled almonds.
