Tasting notes: Clean, crisp, precise, and unbelievably elegant, with soft notes of lemon and piquant brine and minerality. Worth knowing: Founded in 1914 by Eugène-Aimé Salon, Salon is among the younger producers in Champagne—and perhaps the one whose wines are most elusive. Salon makes only one wine, a Blanc de Blancs (chardonnay only), and it does not make wine in every vintage.
