When we went to Paris a couple of years ago, my wife and daughter had fun shopping but by the end of the trip I had bought nothing for myself. So they (out of mild guilt, perhaps?) urged me to get myself something nice. So on our last day I wandered into @la_derniere_goutte and poked around until this bottle (and its astonishingly good price) caught my eye. So I brought it back and last night opened it with some of our very best wine-loving friends. Never having had a Selosse rosé (not even when I visited Anselme for a tasting) I didn’t know what to expect. What I got was dried orange peel and wet leaves, a touch of toasted brioche, a little salinity and a hint of caramel, all with a soft, slightly fading mousse. It didn’t blow my mind (as Selosse wines often do) so I have a nagging sense that my bottle might have been light struck or slightly oxidized, but as someone who appreciates oxidative winemaking, I enjoyed it a lot. Only one thing to do, and that’s try another bottle sometime. A blend of Chardonnay from Avize and 2 vintages of Pinot Noir from Ambonnay. Disgorged in 2017.

Very nice. Slightly drying alpine strawberry with a hint of dried roses. Then a steely middle and a lovely, intense finish. A classy dry and restrained rose

The NV (2013) Rosé is another positively stellar wine in a range of Champagnes that literally dazzles from the first wine to the last. Tense and transparent, the Rosé is super-expressive. Drops of still Pinot add a dash of color and flavor intensity, but the Selosse Rosé is ultimately driven by bright Chardonnay citrus, floral and mineral notes that build through to the textured, inviting finish. Dosage is 1.8 grams per liter. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2019)

How does this marry oxidation and freshness and tension so seamlessly? Compelling. Better warmer, and best with food. You could have this as an apero, but there's more to be discovered as it finds its place at the table. Hard to believe this is almost all Chardonnay. Unique.

We couldn't help ourselves in St. Emilion with all the Selosse available. Aperitif for lunch at L'envers du Decor.

Selosse’s NV Extra Brut Rosé is especially gracious and light on its feet in this release, with a real sense of weightlessness that makes it an excellent choice to get the evening started. Disgorged October 5, 2015. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Jul 2017)

A bounty of aldehydes-- the garden of aldehydes. Penetrating, long, subtle.

Selosse Rose...purchased at Domaine....January 23rd, 2012 disgorgement. Oxidation was more integrated than previous bottles albeit different disgorgement dates.
