Salon 2007 is immediately appealing with its pale shades -- cool blonde tones glistening with lemon and green. The bubbles are fine, the very essence of Salon 2007 in all its dynamic luminous energy. In the glass, aromas form a moving backdrop, fresh and bright as sunrise, with notes of lemon, lime, yuzu, then green apple, a hint of smoked tea and fresh herbs on wet stone. The palate is focused on backbone and purity; this is the terroir of Le Mesnil taking center stage, displaying its unique rigor and stony imprint. An electric sensation, sending shiver upon shiver down the spine. Salon 2007 will shine on, preserved in the darkness of its cellars, asking only to be brought into the light, a shimmering aurora borealis.
