Jacques Selosse



Wine: Initial
Appellation: extra brut/brut
Vintage: nv
Terroir : Blend of 3 consecutive harvests from vineyard orientated south/south east and located at the bottom of the hills standing on bedrock with quite a good amount of clay giving a round and fully bloomed wine
Average of vines:
Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Dosage: 3-7 g/L
Bottle size: 75 cl



Aging on lees (both first and second alcoholic fermentation) for 6 years at least. Dosed between 3 & 7 g/l after tasting



Deep colour, vanilla, velvet and vellum aromas and peppery spice hints. Full body but taught mineral and acid elements. Long. Very good in this full-flavoured style and not overly oaked.





Press Comments

Robert Parker: The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Initial presents an intriguing melange of slate, crushed rocks, lemon, white flowers and ash. An utterly vivid, kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors follow as this crystalline, utterly pure wine comes alive in the glass. As is often the case, the Initial stands out for its focus, vibrancy and tension. The Initial is the freshest of the Selosse wines and is therefore a great introduction to the house style.
