Salon Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne 2006
Once Salon 2006 is opened, leave it a little while to breathe, to open out. Then, just watch: its shimmering golden color, glinting silver and green. The never-ending bubbles, so tiny, setting free the hallmark bewitching scents of Salon in its first flush. Notes of white flowers, citrus zest, lightly toasted brioche. Then the glass fills magically with autumnal tones, hazelnuts, praline, dried apricot, ripe yellow fruits. A romantic of the highest order, Salon 2006 embodies the carefree spirit of youth, tempered by experience. Therein lies its true enigma and charm. To master restraint yet give without measure, to be grounded yet ineffably light.
