2008 Salon – Rarer than ever!
The Champagne party will never end when it comes to the already legendary 2008 vintage. And now Salon joins the party with the latest 2008 release from one of the most prominent houses, which may also be one of the most extraordinary and sought after ever.
Salon is synonymous with the highest quality and to great annoyance of the champagne lovers, Salon Cuvée "S" is produced only in the absolute best vintages and in extremely limited quantities. In fact, in the period 1990-2009, Salon was only released in eight out of 20 possible vintages with a production in the region of 60,000 bottles each vintage. In contrary, Dom Pérignon has released 15 vintages in the same period - and millions of bottles in each.
As if this was not enough for the Salon-hungry world, Salon President Didier Depond made a dramatic decision regarding the house's long-awaited 2008 Cuvée "S"; The champagne was to be released exclusively in magnum bottles and production was limited to only 8,000 bottles in total!
The 8,000 bottles of the 2008 Salon Cuvée "S" on magnum were released on September 19 and are sold exclusively in a Collector's Case, named 2008 Salon Limited Edition Oenotheque Case. The beautifully crafted case containing one magnum bottle of the 2008 Salon Cuvee "S" and two bottles of each of the 2004, 2006 and 2007 vintage of the same wine.
In other words, an ultimate Salon experience is awaiting the few who end up getting their hands on these extremely rare Salon Oenotheque cases.
