Dots and Bubbles with the Trait-d-union (Sydney, Australia): Disgorged 17/02/14 from solera. 2 g/l dosage. Roses and spice, plenty of earth and even some smoked charcuterie. The palate is medium weight, with a slight oxidative twang to it. Has good length and I found it had a real moreish quality to it. The weaker of the three Selosse wines at this tasting, but still decidedly unique and memorable.
Tasted at La Fête du Champagne seminar with Anselme Selosse. What a treat. Incredible nose with light sherry notes. Powerful on the palate with big minerals and abundant acid. Long, long on the finish with a tremendous mouthfeel. Pinot noir character comes through clearly in this beautiful Champagne.
Typical selosse, opulent, more burgundy than champagne, a hint of aged signs but with freshness and a great balance. PN with fruit, spices, dark chocolate and mintchocolate. well done. It is a monster.
The Champagnes of Jacques Selosse (featuring all 6 Lieux-Dits) by the Rare Wine Co. (NoMad Hotel Penthouse, New York, NY.): Again from a solera stared with the 04 vintage, so it also contains 04 & 05 at this point. On the same hills as Clos de Goisses, but around the side. Also, Peter Liem told us that the vineyard soil contains a significant amount of Magnesium, and Selosse thinks this adds a bitterness to the wine). I found that bitterness on the nose, along with some funk or mushrooms, almost barnyard. Chalk. with lots of acid that combines with the bitterness. Good grip, but somewhat odd. Nose - 5/6, Palate - 5/6, Finish - 5./6, Je Ne Sais Quoi - 1/2 = 16/20.
