Selosse's wines always show better with post-disgorgement age. This bottle was disgorged in 2010, and it's really starting to pick up steam now.

Disgorged October 2010. A slightly oxidized nose that is joined by green apples, pears, and nuts. In the mouth it was like a plane on a runway ready to take off. Increasingly powerful impressions of citrus , chalk and creaminess. Great complexity and power.

What could be more decadent than #JacquesSelosse by the glass ($50)???
Our dear friends at
#SPRUCE have done the deed and we're thrilled they did--this "Initiale" is itself a decadent glass of bubbles that we could drink all day! #Brut #Champagne
