Salon 2006, a great vintage with a tremendous future ahead!
First of all, just wait. Once Salon 2006 has been uncorked, leave it a little while, to breathe, to open out!!
Matching Salon 2006 to food is a sensual delight: from slices of Iberico ham to an ultra-dark chocolate tart, truffled mash, or even sublime truffled eggs, a carpaccio of tuna.
EYE: Shimmering golden colour, glinting silver and green. The never-ending bubbles, so tiny, setting free the familiar betwitching scents of Salon in its first flush.
NOSE: Notes of white flowers, citrus zest, lightly toasted brioche. Then the glass fills magically with autumnal tones, fresh hazelnuts, praline, dried apricot, ripe yellow fruits.
MOUTH: A romantic of the highest order, Salon 2006 embodies the carefree spirit of youth, tempered by experience. And there lies its true enigma and charm. To know restraint but be generous, to combine lightness with solidity. This sense of duality is confirmed in the impeccable palate structure. Simultaneously rich and incisive, with the fine linear acidity to permit cellaring for 30 years, Salon 2006 has a long future ahead.
