Calling all sommeliers and wine lovers alike. Our latest addition to our delectable wine selection at Kimball’s Kitchen is the 2002 Salon Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Champagne. This vintage comes from a one-hectare parcel called “Salon’s garden,” owned by Salon. This parcel along with 19 other small parcels in Mesnil-sur-Oger were chosen by Eugène-Aimé Salon in the beginning of the 20th century.
The wine produced at Salon is rare on all counts. It was originally the product of one single man, Aimé Salon; from one single region, the Côte de Blancs; from one single cru, le Mesnil-sur-Oger; from one single grape variety, Chardonnay; and from one single vintage, with no blending whatsoever. Champagne Salon is only produced in exceptional years, which in practice means Salon only produces about four vintages per decade making the Champagne exceedingly hard to acquire. This Champagne is the 38th vintage of Salon’s Blanc de Blancs.
This wine is featured at Kimball’s Kitchen, but is available anywhere on property. You won’t want to miss out on this exceptional vintage.
