95pts Vinous– 2008 vintage

The 2008 Brut Blanc de Blancs Louis Salmon (formerly the vintage Blanc de Blancs) and named after the maison’s first cellar master, is fabulous.  Rich and ample, the 2008 is beautifully resonant in the glass.  It offers up an enticing melange of lemon confit, marzipan, dried flowers and spice.  It’s a terrific 2008, especially for readers looking for a relatively affordable option to some of the super high-flyers in this celebrated vintage.  The blend is 40% Chouilly, 33% Cramant, 20% Mesnil and 7% Avize, done in 1/3rd oak and 2/3rds in steel.  Dosage is 7 grams per liter.  Disgorged: October 2020.
