Not in a great spot now. Opens up with air but basically wait some years with this (and 13 in general).

Great clavo but atypical. Slightly more buttery smell than usual. Lemon zest. Flint. Broad and big mouthfeel.

Still improving. More nuanced over the last two years. Details starting to show. Would have wished for more acidity to improve this.

Gogged October 2009. Absolutely stunning substance. TN in line with previous note but even more powerful and long. Unfortunately served slightly too warm but that’s what happens when you’re thirsty.

Purchased from the winery in July 2017. Nothing on the label on which vintages this is.

Starts out with tart young red apples and lots of grapefruit. Tartest acidity ever for me from this producer. After 2-3 hours the tartness has subsided somewhat. More apple fruit. Still not showing the complexity I expect from this cuvée.

This is something else. Rose made from the bleeding method. Smelling and drinking this is like walking in the Norwegian countryside. “Krekling ”, pine, juniper. Some smokiness. Quite broad. Very interesting champagne.

Marzipan, orange zest, mature yellow apples. Pleasant white grapefruit ending.

Gogged March 13. A very fine example of this cuvée. It needs 5-6 years to shine imho.

Tried again. This doesn’t drink well now for a gg at this price. Either continue cellaring or drink after 24 hours.

Fantastic quality for its level. Massive fresh acidity. Pure. Gains concentration after some time. Yet weightless.

Sweet and sour cherry. Dark fruit. Lacking expected acidity. Some oak. Slightly too heavy handed pinot for me.

Drank at BYO Stangeby. Blind for the others.
Gave off a very young and vibrant impression. Even 2008 was a put forth as a very viable alternative.

Fantastic wine that except for a slightly muted nose has few flaws. Very long and broad. Fantastic salinity and powerful acidity that is firm and mellow. Slightly too young for a perfect drinking window still for my tastes.

Will wait 5-10 years minimum for my last bottle.

Starting to enter its drinking window. Good nose for a BB. Oak is much more integrated than a few years ago.

Smoky. Orange zest. Rich. Marzipan.
Very solid concentration. Long and broad. Maybe the most broad shouldered Selosse I have ever drunk. Toasty ending. Youthful.

Doesn’t last too long in the glass. Fades and acidity contracts and becomes more hollow.

Flawless bottle. Very light and fine color. No sediment.

Extremely fresh. Great backbone of acidity. Notes of coffe, mushroom, candied orange. Concentration and length out of this world. Slight disharmony at the end of acidic curve with some sharpness in the finish. Otherwise close to perfect.

Disappointed. A rustic riesling. Sharp and precise with lots of lime. Acidity is slightly off. Tart but not in a very pleasing way. Acidity’s overpowers the fruit. Popn pour. This needs more cellar time and hope it improves. Potentially just acidity remains.

Strawberries and a musky smell.
Typicity of UC also applies to this vintage.
Quite tight.
Harmonius.
Slightly fresher than the 13.

Gog 03/18.

Great champagne. Fresh and clean on the nose with underlying layers. Fantastic structured backbone of acidity. Great breadth and complexity. A very serious champagne.
