"A restrained, cool and pure nose speaks of citrus, green apple, petrol, yeast and an interesting hint of quinine. The equally restrained, intense and wonderfully pure flavors are classic Salon with their slight edge of youthful austerity coupled with first-rate flavor authority and punch, all wrapped in a lemon rind-inflected and drier than usual finish that goes on and on. This is very classy juice though I stress that it is also markedly backward and in need of plenty of bottle age. Moreover, this is decidedly unlike most 2006s as it in unusually dry without a trace of exoticism. Lovely in every respect."

"The 2006 Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut is quite tangy and reserved by the standards of this sunny, demonstrative vintage. Offering up aromas of smoke, toasted bread, orange oil, mocha and confit lemon, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with racy acids and a concentrated, surprisingly structured mid-palate. Concluding with a long and gently empyreumatic finish, this is a fine success. This bottle was disgorged in January 2019." -Robert Parker

"This is just the 40th vintage of Salon, the first being the 1905 vintage. 2006 was a warm, ripe year, generally forward. Most grapes were a touch low in acidity, although grand cru Chardonnays - particularly in Mesnil - had higher levels. Salon's 2006 has sunny scents of lilac and peach with citrus drive. The mouthfeel is sumptuous yet mineral, showing early charm but with grip to age."
