Salon and Delamotte are two of my very favorite Champagne houses, and I've been fortunate enough to try some of the classics over the years. 2002 was a supremely great vintage and although utterly delicious the wine isn't quite at the revered level that the year and pedigree might suggest. Really energetic and drinking extremely well. Lemon and brioche abound. Bursts from the glass and sustains forever. Appealing now and lots of life ahead of it. — 2 months ago
Very approachable though a little one dimensional despite the quintet of terroirs from which the grapes are sourced. Light bodied. All this aside, it is a perfectly tasty wine to share with a group of friends in a casual setting. — 2 months ago
