An exceedingly fine, restrained and exact expression of 2002. Wisps of lemon blossom, a hint of lime, a note of almond and signature Le Mesnil minerality permeate through a delicate, lingering finish. Tightly wound citrus fruit lies dormant in coiled up suspension, hinting at great things to come in the cellar.
100% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, rich, with a surprising delicatessen and round mouth feel. Golden in color with, floral fragrances of rose, citrus and hints of ginger. Lovely long lasting finish.

" The 1999 Brut Blanc de Blancs is impenetrable. This is a massive, full-bodied Salon that totally saturates the palate with fruit. There is little in the way of flavor or aromatic development, and it may be some time before any real complexity develops in bottle. Today it looks like the wine’s best days are well off into the future. " Robert Paker
