Salon “S” Le Mesnil Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs 1971
The Blanc de Blanc was birthed during the Art Deco (1905-1936) era, from which Atlas takes its inspiration. Eugène Aimé Salon created the first such bottling in 1911 with the 1905 vintage – from one single region, the Côte de Blancs; from one single cru, le Mesnil-sur-oger; from one grape, Chardonnay and one single unblended vintage. This extremely rare and perfectly cellared bottle from the Hwang family cellars is from the highly rated 1971 vintage. In contrast, the most current release is the 2006 ($900).
