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. This release is a blend of vintages 2005, 2006 and 2007, from the villages of Avize, Cramant and Oger.. (AG)
A bright and harmonious Champagne, with a lovely nose of graphite, pastry dough and spring blossom leading to the creamy palate's flavors of white peach, toasted almond, fleur de sel and lemon curd. Distinctive, showing good tension and focus on the lasting finish. (AN)
The NV Initial is fresh, bright and invigorating. Lemon confit, white flower, mint and chalk open up nicely in the glass. This is a fairly soft, open-knit version of Initial that will drink well with minimal cellaring. As always, there is a good bit of freshness, but the edges are a bit softer than is typically the case at this state. Dosage is 1.5 grams per liter. (AG)
The chalk soil is much more like the albariza in Jerez than like the limestone of Burgundy, says Anselme Selosse. Dosage 1.6 g/l. Deep and intense on the nose and has a lovely rich spice with hints of ginger and dried grasses. A touch of apple and yeasty richness. So intense and full flavoured. Powerful and long. Rich and rounded and hard to believe the dosage is so low. (JH) 17.5/20
