Jacques Selosse Version Original Grand Cru Extra Brut NV

12% abv

Vol- 75cl

100 % Chardonnay, V.O. emerges from upper hillside parcels in Avize.

“The NV (2013) Versione Originale (V.O.) is another highlight in this set of new releases from the Selosse family. Ample, creamy and beautifully layered, the V.O. is endowed with tons of character and nuance. Dried flowers, hazelnut, chamomile and mint all open up, but more than anything else, the Version Originale offers a striking interplay of textural richness and pure, crystalline energy. I really like the tension here. This release of Version Originale was bottled with no dosage.”
95+ Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“It is hard to think of a single individual in Champagne today whose work is more influential than that of Anselme Selosse. If the future of Champagne truly is going to be one in which terroir plays more of a role then the region as a whole will have to pay more attention to Selosse and less to its accountants and brand managers.”— Andrew Jeffords

Anselme Selosse can be described as eccentric, obsessed, charismatic and messianic, who, depending on one's point of view, is one of the most fascinating vignerons at work in Champagne today. His philosophy is conspicuously Burgundian in the winery, where all of his 35 Chardonnay plots (in Avize, Cramant, Oger, Le Mesnil, Ay, Mareuil-sur- Ay and Ambonnay) are vinified separately in small Burgundian barrels that have been bought in from Domaine Leflaive, no less.

Eschewing malolactic fermentation and keeping the dosage low are practices which find empirical antithesis in the ripeness of fruit which has been farmed as late as possible. Man and wine alike court strong opinion, in itself no bad thing in a region dominated by the power of the Grandes Marques.
