Cuvée presentation

This champagne is the fruit of vinified Pinot Noir (an 80% majority) and Chardonnay grapes matured in oak casks. It is a process which lends this already-vinous cuvée additional complexity. The low dosage added also enables the wine to express its characteristics in full, taking the form of fresh aromatic notes and great structure in the mouth. Feel free to experiment with interesting food-wine pairings to bring out its best.

Information about domain Jacques Selosse

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.
