Salon Cuvee 'S' Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Brut 2002, Champagne, France
PRESS: Wine Enthusiast - 100 points.
James Suckling - 99 points. "The 2002 is a fabulous vintage, phenomenal quality. I tasted it in New York City yesterday. I was mesmerized. It is a subtle and intense Champagne that shows complex character of lilac, minerals, sliced lemon, apple, and white pepper. It is full body and dense yet racy and agile with a lightness and freshness. It has a gloriously long finish. It changes every moment in the glass. It has such clarity. It’s magnificent to drink now, but shows great texture and structure for aging."
