Robert Parker 93/100

Sourced from two parcels in Avize, Selosse’s 2003 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs evinces aromas of malted barley, toasted nuts, mocha and sweat, as such quite recognizably of its torrid vintage. On the palate, the torrefactive and animal dimensions are met by a surprising sense of primary juiciness, even though it’s difficult to pin down a particular fruit, though mirabelle is suggested. Full and lees-endowed but in no way heavy – indeed, there’s an uncanny sense of buoyancy – this finishes with profound length, incorporating suggestions of chalk, if not the mouthwatering salinity that I associate with most Selosse wines and with Avize in general. Its author opines that not just its relative levity but also its sense of structure and clarity surprise him based on his expectations at the time of harvest and when the wine was young. “I started picking on the fifth of September,” he recalls, “yet the potential alcohol level was not really that high, – 11.5 to the upper 11’s – due to repeated blockage (i.e. shut-down) of the vine metabolism.” I suspect this will prove fascinating as well as versatile over at least the next 3-4 years. (The bottle I tasted was disgorged in February and went to market this autumn.) Anselme Selosse has managed to become a legend at a by no means advanced age; and more importantly an inspiration and mentor to stylistically innovative and environmentally-conscious wine growers over several decades, across France and beyond. It’s easy to forget how revolutionary were this grower’s terroir-centric approach, viticultural rigor, and laissez-faire attitude toward vinification when he emerged on the Champagne scene after completing formal studies and returning to his family’s estate in the mid-1970s. Nor are Selosse’s wines about to stop being controversial, because not every taster will accept the complexity of long cask maturation including oxidative- and flor-influence in their Champagne; and as thought-provoking as these wines are, the Selosse approach guarantees that some of his vinous offspring will walk more on the wild side or present an aesthetically less satisfying whole than will others. “I haven’t got a check-list,” he remarks, “and neither has nature.” Selosse is the iconic representative of an approach no longer considered unusual thanks to his example, and characterized by respecting one’s viticultural principles, including such as arise from concern for sustainability and integrity, striving to permit each vineyard and parcel of vines to most fully express itself; but – certain inspired flights of fancy no doubt excepted – imposing only minimal if any stylistic restraints on one’s wine, whether those based on perceptions of market demand or even personal aesthetic vision. In keeping with this approach – not to mention with the degree to which demand exceeds supply (horribly exacerbated earlier this year by a massive theft of stock from his cellar) – most of my time with Selosse this summer was spent tasting his fascinating, at times mesmerizing young 2012s and 2011s out of a melange of barriques of various age (from classic Burgundy tonneliers, but including since 2005 some Acacia) and discussing how they reflect the character of the 47 parcels in which they originate; and I tasted a (numerically!) relatively modest subset of finished wines currently or soon to be in the marketplace.

The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru V.O. (Version Originale) is a massive wine boasting superb concentration and a level of textural richness that is unprecedented in Champagne. Here the fruit coats every inch of the palate in a stunning, virtuosic expression of ripe fruit. Smoke, minerals and incense add a visceral, exotic dimension to the wine that is impossible to resist. Version Originale is Chardonnay from Avize, Cramant and Oger, vintages 2002, 2001 and 2000. In a word: awesome Disgorged: November 5, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

An utterly electrifying wine, the NV Brut Rose is simply drop dead gorgeous. The style is all about energy, delineation and minerality with this release, a blend of vintage 2004 and 2005 Chardonnay with the addition of still Pinot. This isn’t one of the more vinous versions of the Rose, which actually helps to make it quite versatile. Selosse’s NV Rose can be enjoyed before a meal but also has the tension to pair beautifully with food. The balance and overall sense of harmony are both dazzling. Disgorgement date: December 8, 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. Despite all of the acclaim and recognition Anselme Selosse has received over the years, he continues to push the envelope of what Champagne is and can be. The new lieu-dit Champagnes, which now encompass six different bottlings – all of them multi-vintage blends – are off the charts, but frankly, so are the rest of the wines. Readers who want to learn more about Selosse might want to take a look at my recent videos on our site. Selosse fans might also want to consider a stay at Les Avizes, the hotel Anselme Selosse and his wife Corinne recently opened in Avize, which is probably the best way to visit this iconic producer.

Jacques Selosse's 1996 Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs is exotic and sweet, in a style that combines plenty of ripe fruit with the intensely mineral-driven style of the vintage. This is a beautiful, structured Champagne although it doesn't seem to match the profound level achieved by the finest wines of the vintage.

The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Initial is absolutely impeccable. It's hard to know where to start. What is more impressive: the definition of aromas and flavors, or is it the wine's sublime texture? The Initial is remarkable for its nuance, clarity and overall sense of harmony. The mousse is impeccably fine from start to finish, while the expression of Chardonnay is all elegance. Juicy apricots, peaches, flowers, crushed rocks and spices meld together on the seamless, utterly impeccable finish. Initial is Selosse's largest production cuvee and is a blend of fruit from Avize, Cramant and Oger, all Grand Cru villages. Disgorged October 20, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

I visited Anselme and Corinne Selosse just as they were putting the finishing touches on their new boutique hotel in Avize. I am not sure they make enough wine to satisfy the thirst of their patrons, but that is another story! This is a fabulous set of wines, among the very best I have ever tasted here.

Selosse’s NV Extra-Brut La Cote Faron is the wine that replaces Contraste in the lineup. The current release is based on the 2005 vintage, with wines back to 1994. Sweet, perfumed and intensely layered, the Cote Faron is remarkably elegant and polished for a wine of this size. Sweet herbal and floral notes are layered into the perfumed, totally sensual finish.Disgorgement date: April 20, 2012.

The NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru Les Carelles boasts extraordinary power, breadth and sheer richness. Layers of butter, pastry, tropical fruit, spices and smoke literally bursts from the glass as this exotic, heady Champagne struts its stuff. I imagine the Carelles might be too much for some readers, but for those seeking to get to the heart of the Selosse style; here it is. This is a dazzling showing. Disgorgement date: April 25, 2012.

As if it were possible, the NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Substance takes things up a notch or three. Montrachet with bubbles might be a good description for this profound, utterly moving Champagne. Waves of rich, sensual fruit supported by French oak and persistent veins of minerality all come together in this deep, totally satisfying Champagne. Even with all of the richness and depth, there is no sense of heaviness at all. This is a decidedly vibrant Substance, with fewer of the more oxidative notes this solera-style Champagne sometimes presents. Readers lucky enough to find it will enjoy one of the world's truly great wines. Disgorged October 22, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015.
