    Cuvée presentation

    There is no longer any need to introduce you to this icon of Champagne, the Jacques Selosse estate, which has known real success thanks to the exceptional work of Anselme Selosse and, today, his son Guillaume. This modest domaine offers up great wines, resulting from cultivation techniques inspired by biodynamics. Great wines like this Grand Cru Millésimé. The idea is to bring out the original terroir. This involves very comprehensive work in the vineyard such as growing grass between the vines which ensures both a healthy competition between these two plants, and the presence of local microbial life. The roots are encouraged to draw the nutrients necessary for them to flourish from deep within the local chalky soils. Matured in barrels, the wine is endowed not just with a good aging potential, but also with an exceptional character.
    Tasting reveals a rich, ripe wine. Its blend of aromas reveals notes of dried fruits, walnut, almond and hazelnut, as well as a slight oxidative touch. The bubbles are delicate, and the character is sophisticated.
    Here we have a wine which will be enhanced with time and will offer you a real moment of meditation. Do not hesitate to pair it with gourmet dishes.

    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.
