About The Wine
Anselme Selosse is one of the most revolutionary figures in the world of wine today.
The ultimate iconoclast, Anselme took the concepts and traditions that made the best wines of Burgundy and the Rhone Valley so iconic - that it takes great fruit to make transcendent wines, and expression of terroir is paramount - and brought those ideas to his family's vineyards in Champagne.
His wines are now hunted like the rarest of birds across the planet
This promises to be an incredible wine. 100 Points from Champagne's most renowned critic, William Kelley, from a truly great vintage (2008).
About Domaine Jacques Selosse
Selosse is a name mentioned in mythical, shadowy terms, the unicorn wines of Champagne, that really don't have much in common with commercial or even prestige Champagne at all.
Anselme took over the estate from his father Jacques in 1980, and pretty much turned the Champagne world on its head, focussing on individual terroirs and vineyards, some oxidative winemaking, extended aging, lower dosage, lower SO2....Everything that hardly anyone else was doing.
He officially retired in 2018, with talented son Guillaume now running the show.
