Winemaker's Notes

"Everyone agrees that the 1988 vintage in Champagne was remarkable, showing both finesse and power, which is exactly typical of Salon."

"Clear gold color. Bright with transparency. Very fine mousse with a nice slow chimney and a persistent circle of tiny bubbles. The nose is very pure, toasty, 'brioche', and sweet-preserved citrus, 'confits'. On the mouth, it is elegant, round and silky, creamy and again citrusy."

"Typical of Salon style, this 1988 is very fresh, clean and elegant, with a fine structure, complex, mature flavors and a long clean finish. A great example of the vintage, Salon 1988 emphasizes finesse and power, which is the epitome of a great wine." -Bertrand de Fleurian, Former Director General, Champagne Salon

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
