Salon S Le mesnil blanc de blanc 1996


Lovely Bubbly

Le mesnil is a small vineyard where only in exceptional years do they pick the grapes – in the last 88 years they have made it only 35 times. It has fine persistent bubbles and a subtle bouquet of grapefruit, kiwi, lemon and green apple. It is complex on the palate and refreshing, with a burst of minerality. It is a well-built champagne, muscular and powerful, destined to be still talked about 40 years from now, as was the Salon 1928. Available from Tattersall Imports for CI$295
