  • In the vines, Jacques Sélosse encourages root growth, ensuring they draw out the well-concealed chalky, mineral notes of their terroir. A decision has also been made to dose this wine very lightly; a wine which, upon tasting, is seductively refined, with delicate bubbles and subtle aromas. An extended maturation period lends it additional complexity and beautiful, slightly oxidised notes. Of course, you can keep it for a few years in your cellar.

    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.
