Le Mesnil Sur Oger, Côte Des Blancs

Salon

'S' Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut Chardonnay 1997

Still quite medium light lemon yellow , pretty youthful looking . Was pretty difficult to get the cork out and wasn’t going to risk sabrage on a bottle of Salon ! A few very fine but persistent bottles . Nicely yellow fruit driven nose , lemon peel, vanilla , acacia , orange blossom and pastry . On the palate quite rich and rounded , those citrus peel notes , mixed with oyster shell , and dried apricot , and baked pastry . Quite a lot of extract still and really quite fresh , long and well balanced finish . Perfect drinking now and over the next 10 years perhaps. This is the original release from a case purchased here in Brazil about 7 years ago, still going strong which is good to know . — 2 months ago

Le Mesnil Sur-Oger Champagne Blend Rosé

An impressively attractive salmon colored robe with lively effervescence. The nose is amazing. Just the right amount of everything good. Red apples and underripe cherries for days. There’s an undercurrent of spice throughout this champagne starting here that’s positively lovely. Peaches and pastries, along with a touch of smoke.

Predominately Chardonnay from Côte des Blancs with a smattering of Pinot Noir. In the world of non vintage rosé champagnes, this stands near the top. Elegant and dry, there’s outstanding balance here and it improves in the glass over time. Restrained red fruit on the palate with some citrus peeking through. More spice on the long finish that leaves you wanting more. A superb champagne.
