About the wine
Salon creates history in Champagne
For a number of reasons, 2008 was an exceptional year. While 2008 was the smallest harvest ever brought in by Salon, with just 8,000 magnums produced, it is also an all-time highest quality vintage, on a par with the legendary Salon 1982, Salon 1966 and Salon 1928 vintages. But the 2008 is likely to raise the quality bar even further and leave its indelible stamp on the twenty-first century.
Raising the wine only in magnums was the blindingly obvious choice as it is the ideal bottle size for slow, delicate maturation. Salon 2008 already has its place in the Pantheon of the greatest wines of the century.
No two vintages are alike. After the very small harvest of 2008 came three non-vintage years whose quality fell short of Salon’s expectations, so 2009, 2010 and 2011 were passed over. It became necessary to make decisions that would further enhance the house’s history. The first oenotheque case of Salon was quietly being readied in the cellars.
Four vintages, four personalities
With 2008, Salon achieved a vintage known as a “Dream”, while “Light” shone forth from the 2007. The 2006 was fondly called the “Romantic” vintage, followed on from 2004’s “Serenity”.
Brought together at a single disgorgement in January 2019 the two bottles of the 2004 vintage, two from 2006 and two from 2007, are stamped “2019 edition”, to distinguish them from earlier releases. The 2008 magnum is no exception and fulfils Aimé Salon’s great dream of creating a unique collection of Champagnes.
