Initial is the most produced in quantity and can be referred to as the “entry level” bottling for Selosse but really, it is anything but, and should not be overlooked. Particularly so with some bottle age. 2018 disgorgment is in a great spot and wafts from the glass with distinctive Selossien aromas of caramelized stone fruit, roasted nuts, honeycomb, gun smoke and floral undertones. The palate is rich, powerful and deep with racy acids and a chalky mineral core. It has both freshness and oxidative complexity yielding a complete, balanced and utterly seamless Champagne. Selosse perfection for me is 5-6 years post disgorgement and this is entering that window in great fashion. Always a treat. — 10 days ago
Nose is cherry lipstick. Elegant earth.
Palate is perfect cherry. Some mere hint of bitterness. So fresh. As it opens cherry licorice. Snap this is good.
Man this is fucking well made. 9.7 on that scale. Balance. Finesse. So great. You can serve this to a billionaire. If they get burgundy they will love it.

First Substance, at Les Avisés no less. Lived up to the hype to say the least, strong out of the gate. Depth, depth, depth, and continued to gain character for the ensuing 5 hours - approaching a near Sherry like state. Outstanding, especially with the lovely food in the restaurant. — 9 hours ago
