First taste: Salon 2012 and Delamotte 2014

Yohan Castaing tastes the latest Champagne releases from Salon and Delamotte.

The famous small and exclusive Champagne house Salon is set to release the 43rd edition of its single cuvée, hailing from the 2012 vintage, on Monday 22 November.

Decanter was granted a preview of it in the company of the house’s president and managing director, Didier Depond.

‘The weather patterns of 2012 remind me of 2021, albeit with less frost this year,’ explains Didier Depond. ‘The flowering occurred in a haphazard manner and then the summer was cool, but the summer ended with fine, sunny weather, resulting in an exceptional vintage.’
