Champagne Jacques Selosse Overview
+
The origins of this great grower Champagne began when the estate was founded by Jacques Selosse and his family in the 1950’s. Taken over by Anselme Selosse in 1970 with an idea of making great champagne comes from using the greatest fruits. Based in the Avize region of Chamapgne, the estate produced it’s first vintage in 1960. As a grower champagne, the grapes used to produce the wines are grown in vineyards owned by the winery rather than being purchased from other growers. Selosse wines are fermented using oak barrels and the estate is formed of 15ha, predominately Chardonnay with the remainder Pinot Noir and around 55,000 bottles are produced each vintage. In the winery, Anselme defies convention using only indigenous yeasts for fermentations and according to Anselme “great Champagne needs no make-up, dosage is kept to an absolute miminum”.

The champagne is unique and if there is such a thing as a cult champagne maker, this is one; its fermentation and malolactic fermentation all happen in barrel so its very much a champagne made with "oxygen present" so is instantly recognisable with a rich amber gold colour, has amazing concentration on the nose, lots of dried fruits and lime character and a richly flavoured palate quite similar to rich fruit cake and just a slight bubble that lifts a long and lingering finish.
