Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Speechless! Long, lonely afternoon with 2-hour family Zoom...pared down trad turkey feast with just the two of us. But, hard to feel down with a glass of Selosse Rose. Such finesse and balance... I searched two years for a source... and now I swallow hard and purchase in 3’s. Easily the best Rose in my Champagne history. — 6 days ago

Lieux Dits Aÿ La Cote Faron Extra Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend

Rich, powerful and with amazing texture and intensity. Signature oxidative notes are seamlessly integrated with its layered complexity and expressive fruit. Stone fruits, crushed flowers, caramel drizzle, hints of lavender and a long and vibrant finish. Lieux-Dits Selosse is the truth. — 3 months ago

Vieillisement Prolongé (V.P) Extra Brut Champagne

9.5

Disgorged 2018 after 84 months on the lees.

This is Egly-Ouriet’s late disgorged offering, and it’s another scintillating champagne that seals my opinion that they are my favorite producer across all offerings. The texture, complexity and character of these champagnes check off every box for me. I’m always chasing Jacques Selosse, and while that’s a goal that will never be achieved (because Selosse champagnes have no equal), this is the closest I’ve come to in regards to style and complexity. Surprisingly, this only has one extra year on the lees compared to their Les Crayeres offering (my favorite), and it’s much more vinous. The aromatics here are ripe, rich and slightly oxidized golden delicious apple, pear, honeyed apricot, orange blossom, and almond croissant. Very fine mousse, to where this almost goes more old white burgundy in style, but still retaining sharp acidity. The palate shows so many floral (honeysuckle) notes alongside more pear and apricot, with a kiss of red fruits and chamomile. Extremely lengthy finish that trends toward caramel but continues to a more tart side instead of sweet. I need to get my hands on an older bottle.

@Shay A Totally agree re Egly. The Blanc de Noirs (100% Pinot Noir) is my favourite.
