Golden yellow, medium minus dark. Falen fruits and appels on nose. Ripe plums. Reductive and oxidised notes, but on the elegant side. On the palet its fruity and deep. Plums and apples. A bitter sweet aftertaste. Long. Medium minus dry. Very rounded and balanced. Cotton like feel in mouth, creamy, wonderfull!
Deg. march/april (?) 2014. Great concentration and power as always from Selosse. Some mature notes. Just kept on improving with time. A great bdb for sure, but think it deserves at least 3-4 years of cellar time.
I just read some of the comments and I am happy to read that more people agree the traditional flute is not the proper glass to taste Champagne. The bottle we drank/tasted today was disgorged Sept. 8, 2013. The bouquet is beautiful and complex with minerals and some anise. On the palate very intense, a bit reductive, or even a bit oxidized in a beautiful way. Oloroso Sherry and rasped apple impressions, beautifully dry, anise again and tight acidity. This is a great and complex Champagne, but not one for beginners.
Disgorged August 2013. Certainly One of the best wines I've ever tasted, and this was only his entry cuvee! Simultaneously rich, generous, elegant, mineral. Huge flavor with just a hint of oxidized Chardonnay notes and such lightness of being and never-ending favors. I hate big bubbles in Champagne and here the bubbles were superfine and didn't get in the way of the wine's complexity, rather they gave it a magic carpet to rise up and float on. If I could only drink this for the rest of my life that would be just fine..
The only drawback is I can't afford to buy this every day so if there any community members who can recommend other champagnes at a lower price point which can at least come a little bit close to this style then I'm all ears.
