Singapore was chosen as the location for the worldwide launch of Salon 2006, the latest release from this highly exclusive champagne brand. With an average of four releases per decade, Salon has become one of the champagne region’s most sought after bottles, with the vintage’s limited production adding to the exclusivity.

This year, the brand’s president, Didier Depond, flew into town to launch the vintage at the city’s latest cocktail and wine bar sensation, Atlas. Despite its relative youth – Champagne Salon can be kept for decades before drinking – the 2006 has already developed into a fantastic wine, with a well balanced floral citrus nose and a deliciously creamy long finish. Available through local distributors, Vintage, a bottle of the 2006 Champagne Salon retails at $648.
