This cuvée was created from a grand cru parcel of old Pinot Noir vines in the commune of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Tasting immediately reveals refined, seductive bubbles. On the nose, there is a rich aromatic bouquet of slightly oxidised notes, stewed apple and gingerbread. Clean yet complex, it is a magnificent illustration of the domain's quirky savoir-faire.
Maison Jacques Selosse in Avize was founded after the Second World War. Since 1974 it has been managed by Jacques’ son Anselme, with the assistance of his son, Guillaume. Their champagnes have earned a reputation for being some of the finest in the region, achieving a rare level of perfection. They are highly sought after by Champagne lovers and showered with praise by the critics. The domain owns 8 hectares of vines and produces less than 60,000 bottles a year. The vineyard follows biodynamic practices but has decided not to seek formal certification so as to remain flexible. Grass is allowed to grow freely around the vines and the land is worked with horse-drawn ploughs. The wines, developed in barriques, are very exciting to drink and full of character although they may surprise novices unfamiliar with this type of champagne.
