Is Salon one of those champagnes that I should try at least once? I've heard the magical stories and the multitude of praise heaped on it. I was debating shelling out the $300 to try the '96. It would be close to $200 more than I've spent on myself for any bottle of wine at retail. I bring this up also because there's a semi-occasion dinner at one of my favorite restaurants and they have the '95 Salon listed at $260, which is actually less than what most retailers are charging, if they even carry it at all.
Opinions? Tasting notes and/or stories appreciated.
