Drinking at the source…Les Avises restaurant at Jacques Selosse. Home for the weekend at Hoteles Avises.
Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, with Anselme Selosse’s son showing his heritage with his personal label. Reminds me of the Jacques Selosse VO…the oxidative flair is there but balanced by crisp fruit that is able to shine (little dosage). It pours almost with a tinge of copper color. There is a whiff of sherry initially before it yields to spiced apple, pear, and honey. It feels more nervy on the palate than JSelosse champagnes do, with a core of tangy fruit, and a killer finish. I picked up a bottle to try again at a later date when I can focus on just it and not the accompanying meal (which was insanely good). — a month ago
Juice world. Cherries. GSMC blend. Great find at Vin Chicago. — a month ago
The 2022 Chablis Village has a taut, focused, mineral-driven bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite waxy in texture with a pithy, peppery lingering finish. Enjoy over the next 4-6 years. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2023)

Yum! Light and floral with green apple and passion fruit. — 6 months ago
This is so fucking good. Starfruit, fennel, the finest olive oil imaginable, elderflower, key lime, a cold stream bubbling through a mountain forest. Magnificent pairing with frozen Costco wild Argentine shrimp. The awesome, shocking, alchemical power of non new oaked Chardonnay continues to reveal itself to me… — 6 months ago
