Tasting Notes:

Flowering began on 21st June after a very mild spring. The summer of 1996, particularly hot, ended with some rainfall that lessoned the drought.

At Le Mensil-sur-Oger, where harvesting started on 23rd September, the Chardonnay was at the peak of ripeness. Rich in sugar, but with high balancing acidity.

A very pale yellow in colour with green highlights (a sigh of impetuous youth): Salon 1996 is limpid, crystalline and lively. With bubbles fine and active.... First revealed are the aromas of green apple, followed by citrus, lemon and grapefruit. After brief aeration appear more subtle notes of pear and kiwi fruit

This magnificent wine is well defined, vinile, vigorous and with contained power.

Salon 1996 .... is Rich and Powerful, invasive, yet subtle. Like Salon 1928, they shall be still speaking of this Vintage in 50 years time!
