At long last, we managed to get our hands on a titan grower - Jacques Selosse. This wine is quite simply rare as hen's teeth, why? Because he only makes 33,000 bottles worldwide.
- Cult Grower with a true 'Burgundian approach' to champagne production
- Use of Solera (reserve wines in barrel) ageing with reserve wines and several Grand Cru parcels
- Oven-baked fish with earthy vegetables and a creamy mushroom sauce
"Is there a better way to start dinner than with a glass of Selosse? Probably not. When reaching for Selosse, I often gravitate towards the Initial, as it is the most vibrant wine in the range. This bottle, which was disgorged a few years ago, brings together the classic lemon peel, white flowers and mineral, signatures nicely mellowed over time. Superb.
