The wines of Anselme Selosse have pushed the boundaries of what champagne is and what it can be, a rebel rousing call to many who have followed his visions and practices, a one man revolution. His guiding principal: "We should take what nature has given us and not interfere."
The Initial stands out for its focus, vibrancy and tension. The freshest of the Selosse wines and is therefore a great introduction to the house style. Intense and invitingly rich baked bread aromas lead to a very dry, ripe and powerful palate. Oxidative and rich it has a savoury and honeyed character that's both exotic and hedonistic. Rare and highly collectable, spoken of in hushed tones, the wines of Selosse are the blueprint which all other gastronomic champagnes follow. Champagne through a Burgundian prism crafted by a master.
We are lucky to have many different discouragement dates, please take into account that these are descriptions of the cuvee in general, not to the specific bottling advertised.
