Wine Advocate : Disgorged in October 2020 with seven grams per liter dosage, the 2008 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Louis Salmon is showing beautifully, unfurling in the glass with scents of crisp yellow apple and stone fruits mingled with dried white flowers, freshly baked bread, buttery pasty and mandarin oil. Full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it's a textural, racy, penetrating wine endowed with considerable cut and concentration. It's derived from the villages of Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger and Chouilly, with the latter accounting for some 40% of the blend.

Decanter 94 points Louis Salmon 2008 is made only with grapes sourced in the Côte des Blancs region,’ said Mathieu Roland-Billecart. ‘Forty percent came from Chouilly, 33% percent from Cramant, 7% from Avize, and 20% from the singular terroir of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
