Jacques Selosse, Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs NV

Finessed and elegant, this wine bursts with fresh citrus and tropical fruits, piquant minerality, toasted brioche, roasted nuts and a kiss of spice. Selosse’s Champagnes are big, rich and complex--this Grower Champagne maker intends these wines to accompany food, and you’re best drinking them from Chardonnay glasses to release the full expression of the wine. Made from 100% Chardonnay from Avize, Cramant and Oger this Champagne is made solera-style, meaning that each release is a blend of wine from three recent vintages and remnants from vintages dating as far back as 1987; the wine remains in bottle five to six years before disgorgement with just 2,700 cases each year.

Pale gold. Seductive scents of pear, orange zest, honeysuckle and smoky minerals. Sappy, precise citrus and orchard fruit flavors are given lift and spine by chalky minerality, picking up a floral quality with air. The floral note lingers on the very long, dusty, impressively vibrant finish.
