Salon 'S' Blanc de Blancs Brut Le Mesnil Chardonnay 2004 (1500ml)

$1144.99$1024.99

98 Points, James Suckling: "...makes instant impact on the nose with fresh-baked pastry and brioche, chalky minerals, fresh white mushrooms, cucumber, lemon curd and striking lemon and lime fruits. The palate has an almost smoky mineral thread while toasty autolytic flavours 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..."

Only 4 months on the market and has great potential. Great on the nose with subtle notes of grapefruit. High minerality and tiny bubbles.

Lean/clean/mean, need to see this in 10yrs, but love so much the acidity of '04, I'd decant & come back to it in 2 hours...

Basically the best thing I’ve ever tasted. I would drink this only instead of water if I had the choice. Bravo

Rich, buttery mouthfeel, classic Salon profile. Unexpected bitterness on the finish, but not unpleasant, just very well balanced.
