firstname.lastname@example.org was the consignee of an intriguing email with subject 'Champagne Salon 1985!!!' two weeks ago. What was our proud when we read the content! We wanted to share with you this message from Mr John Michael Gilbert, working as Manager of the restaurant Bourbon Steak by Michael Mina in the Four Season Hotel in Georgetown DC. Thank you very much for these encouraging words to remind Salon as one of the greatest Blanc de Blancs of the world !
'Depond's passion for the wine is contagious and really gives a backbone to the elegance and prestige. I have been in love with Chardonnay for many years and have a deep respect for the wine and Region of Champagne (particularly the Cote des Blancs). To me, Chardonnay is the most commanding grape, with Blanc de Blancs Champagne it's finest expression. After patiently waiting for a year, our bottle of Salon 1985 Magnum was sold in the restaurant. I was fortunate enough to enjoy an entire glass of your wonderful Chardonnay and can only remark that the wine is truly special and has no equal. From La Tache, and Krug, to Comte Lafon and Vieux Telegraph, no wine sparkling or not, has made a similar impact on me as Salon. To this day I remember each sip vividly and have been chasing the same experience ever since ! I truly thank everyone involved in producing such a work of art and cannot wait to try our 1997 and 1999!!'
