Salon is a small producer of Champagne Blanc de Blancs critically acclaimed. Salon, along with Delamotte, since 1989 is part of the Laurent-Perrier Group. And 'it considered one of the greatest Champagne on the market. The Salon company was founded by Eugene Aimé Salon in the early 20th century. Salon was convinced that the Chardonnay grapes of Mesnil-sur-Oger area were able to produce wine with high levels in terms of finesse and elegance, without the need to add Pinot Noir or Pinot Meunier. At the turn of the 20th century, the Salon has begun to produce a single batch of Chardonnay, which has privately shared with friends. The first commercial vintage of Champagne Salon was 1921 and the end of 2006, the house has produced only 37 years with the Salon label. After the death of Eugene Aimé Salon in 1943, his sister inherited the company that was eventually sold to the Laurent-Perrier in 1989. Since then, the Salon is an integral part of the Maison Salon-Delamotte.More
