Cuvée presentation

Created after the Second World War, Jacques Selosse in Avize has been run since 1974 by Anselme, the son of Jacques, with the help of his son Guillaume. Their champagnes have established one of the best reputations in the region, achieving a rare perfection. This ensures that they are highly prized by wine lovers and acclaimed by critics. With eight hectares of vineyards, the domain produces fewer than 60,000 bottles per year. The vines are worked according to biodynamic methods, but a choice has been made not to seek certification, providing greater flexibility if necessary. The vines are grassed and worked by plough and horse. The wines are matured in barrels; they are truly exciting to taste and reveal genuine character, yet they are capable of surprising neophytes not accustomed to this style of champagne.

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.
