Disgorged February 2019. Selosse’s Millésime has traditionally been sourced from two sites in Avize: Les Chantereines (east-facing) and Les Maladries du Midi (south-facing). As of 2007, this is no longer the case. As a result of the transition to Guillaume Selosse’s stewardship, from this release, the wine has become a blend of the best parcels across the entire Estate. Obviously, this means there’s almost always going to be some Pinot in the blend—there’s 30% in 2007. It spends nine to ten years on lees. The dosage is 2 grams.
“The 2007 Extra-Brut Millesime Grand Cru represents a major stylistic and generational shift at Selosse, as it is the first vintage Champagne Guillaume Selosse made with a vision of using the best parcels across the entire estate, rather than focusing on the best lieu-dits in Avize, as his father did. The 2007 is powerful, ample and resonant, with plenty of textural intensity from the 30% Pinot in the blend. Beautifully balanced, with striking transparency as well as nuance, the 2007 is a total knock-out.” 97 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
