Expert Reviews

Jancis Robinson (2002 Vintage) says
The nose is beautifully open – buttercream, bakery dough with a saline and flint character too. Impeccable but very subtle fruit. This is excellence done by degrees. There’s a floral quality, and a smoky, reductive edge too. Even some honey. It’s only just entering its drinking window. As is often said of the very best champagnes, this is wine first and sparkling second. 20/-20
James Suckling (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 Salon is phenomenal quality. It is a subtle and intense Champagne that shows complex character of lilac, minerals, sliced lemon, apple and white pepper. It is full body and dense yet racy and agile with a lightness and freshness. It has a gloriously long finish. It changes every moment in the glass. It has such clarity. It’s magnificent to drink now, but shows great texture and structure for ageing. 20/-20
Tyson Stelzer (1999 Vintage) says
Salon is a fabled name in champagne circles, and ranks in the top four houses in all of champagne. It makes but one cuvée and Australia’s entire allocation of the 1999 was sold wholesale in just 31 days. This warm vintage makes for a Salon of immediacy and accessibility, within Salon’s classic style of honed precision and primary, vibrant white citrus fruits. The focus from start to finish remains resolutely on incisive youthfulness, driven by the inimitable, fine, chalky minerality of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.

Nick Stock (1997 Vintage) says
A distinct contrast to the staggeringly intense 1996, this is a very open glass of champagne. Still complex and symphonic, largely thanks to the 10-year maturation on lees, this offers everything from white truffles through to white mushrooms, little white flowers and chalky oyster shell minerals. The low (5 grams) dosage is understated and the palate offers plenty of fruit, bracing acidity and density. A robust and early-drinking vintage that's going to drink best from 2010.

Nick Stock (1996 Vintage) says
It really doesn't get much better than this. Salon is the world's most sought-after champagne. Super-precise, restrained and powerful, Salon's purity and grace are what sets it apart from the pack; no one cuts this close to perfection! A demanding powerhouse of a champagne.

Angus Hughson (1996 Vintage) says
A spectacular Champagne from one of the greatest vintages, the 1996 Salon is a star that will radiate for decades with vibrant, complex and delicate fruit driven by mouth-watering acidity. Champagne does not come much better than this; 97 points from Wine Enthusiast.
