沙龍香檳 1990年份 0.75L
In the last century, Dom Perignon Champagne was synonymous with the must-have wine for picking up girls. It has appeared in different major movies; James Bond Thunderball, and Year of the Dragon starring the handsome man of the century John Lone. The Champagne rivaled by Rolls-Royce is Krug; it is so unattainable that it rarely appears in movies. The most sought after Champagnes at the moment are Jacques Selosses and Salon. The market price of Selosses has increased from more than 1,000 Hong Kong dollars to 4,800 Hong Kong dollars now. Fortunately, I drank it early! The magic Salon has gone from more than HK$2,000 ten years ago to more than 12,000 Hong Kong dollars today. The upward trend shows no sign of slowing down. Who is more magical than it?
These three high-end champagnes all have one thing in common. The grapes are all from Chardonnay on the Grand Cru Village of the Cote de Blanc. Cote de Blanc is a branch of the Cote D’Or and has 17 Grand Crus. Oger and Les Mesnil Sur Oger are located in the southernmost part and is uniquely endowed with a warm climate. The risk of grape frost is low, and there is no need to harvest green and the wine is made with grapes with perfect ripeness. The sparkling wine that comes out has a fruity aroma. Oger and les Mesnil Sur Oger both have a unique personality; they both have got the aroma of grains, like the aroma of wheat. Therefore, many people describe it as a Jacob’s Cracker or a French brioche. The fragrance of Mesnil Chardonnay is as subtle as Chinese wheat form River Huai.
In addition to its superior geographical conditions, what makes Salon Champagne so popular is the praise of wine critics and the famous Rockefeller family. It is said that their designated banquet champagne is Salon Champagne. Our gossip goddess Zhang Xiaohui mentioned in Tai Pan Zheng ‘s interview that the Rockefeller family entertained her with this champagne!
Krug, Selosses and Salon are three outstanding figures, each with their own merits. Krug was plump, seductive, colorful, with the figure of Ursula Anders. Selosses with higher percentage of grapes from Avize is pleasant and fresh, exquisite and emerald, and slender like Whitney Houston. How to describe Salon is indeed a challenge. Many people who have tried Salon feel that it is over-the-top. I beg to differ on this point. Salon is like our abalone. If it is not cooked well enough, it will be like rubber, bland and difficult to chew. If you are patient enough and let it mature, it will be a completely different realm; just like the difference between fresh abalone sashimi and braised aged dried - abalone. The more delicate the taste, the more you need to chew it carefully. The richer one is, the more one loves money; after all, wealthy businessmen such as Rockefeller would not throw money into the sea! If you want to find someone to describe Salon Champagne, I really can’t think of anyone in this world. May be Queen Nefertiti in ancient Egypt? At first glance, she looks ordinary and pretty, but the more one looks at her, the more interesting she becomes and cannot take one’s eyes off. The only similar beauty in the real world, I think, perhaps, Carrie -Anne Moss in the Chocolate and The Matrix ?
Life is too short for the second best. A nice bottle of Champagne is an essential element for either good moment with beautiful friends.
