    Winemaker's Notes:

    This was a vintage that mystified everyone! Severe winter frosts had destroyed one in ten of every vine in Champagne. Despite the irregular maturity of the clusters at the end of summer, superb sunny weather in September and October enabled the grapes to swell and ripen in perfect conditions. The quality was excellent, producing champagne of remarkable intensity.

    Salon 1985 is the last of this great vintage to be released - after 15 years on the yeast! It is distinguished by its elegance and great complexity. "Bright gold, light and glittering, with aromas of candied fruits, hazelnut, and a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the first impression is of freshness and abundant chardonnay fruit; the finish is long and persistent. The wine displays a rarely achieved balance of strength and complexity." -Alain Terrier, Oenologist, Champagne Salon
