Salon 2002 ‘the Champagne’ for Hong Kong this summer

12th May, 2014 by Rupert Millar

Salon’s 2002 vintage was launched in Hong Kong today (12 May) by its distributor who wants it to be “the wine of celebration” in Hong Kong this summer.

Salon-2002Salon is distributed exclusively by Altaya Wines, one of the city’s leading fine wine importers. Already released in the UK and elsewhere to much acclaim, the Champagne has now arrived in Asia-Pacific.

Managing director of Altaya, Paulo Pong, said: “Salon 2002 is set to be the champagne of celebration in Hong Kong this summer. It is pure luxury in a glass.

“We are delighted to be working with Salon to bring the best of the best to the market.”

When the 2002 was released in the UK it was revealed that the house, like Krug, would not be making a 2012 vintage.

Salon president Didier Depond explained at the time: “There will be no vintage from Salon in 2009, ‘10, ‘11 or ’12. Since 2008, there has been no genuinely great vintage in Champagne.”

As it is unlikely that Salon will make a 2013 vintage either, followers of the house can expect a vintage gap of five years in future.

The wine is available on allocation at HK$3,300 a bottle or $7,550 a magnum.
