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.
Very pale pink, with concentrated ripe melon flavours that shows dried berries, cherries, and spice notes. The subtle finish is filled with mango and balanced.
Grapes: Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah blend
Region: Provence, France
Pale, almost colorless in the glass, this wine smells of golden apples and wet stones. In the mouth the wine has a moderate sweetness, with flavors of lemon and apple, and a hint of something woody, like a wet deck in the rain. A finish of grapes.
50% Pinot Gris, 45% Welsh Riesling, 5% Muscat Ottonel
Intense aromas of roses, rose oil and water, refreshing citrus aromas, strawberries and cherry character, light muscat, very subtle tannins give the wine character.
Attractive bouquet of grapefruit zest, over white blossom and fine herb spice. The palate displays juicy characters of fresh tropical fruit supported by elegant balance and a lingering aftertaste of ripe yellow peach.
