    November 6, 2019 - Another Wine Slog Across France; 11/2/2019-11/13/2019 (Paris, Alsace, Burgundy, Encore Paris): January, 2019 disgorgement. Dull yellow, fine, persistent frothiness. Some oxidative nuttiness quickly blew off to yield bitter citrus and the scent of crushed limestone. Full bodied and creamy, crackling acidity and stone, vanilla and a dash of herbs. Youthful, vibrant, and long, it just continued to improve over several hours. Rich, well balanced disgorgement.

    September 29, 2019 - 1996 Burgundy Retrospective - The Last Session (Eddie V's - Tysons Corner, VA): Rich and complex nose displaying concentrated yellow fruit, apple pie, apple vinegar, almond, brioche, a hint of butter scotch, cinnamon, saline and limestone mineral. Exceptional concentration, layers upon layers of decadent concentrated yellow fruit, rich and opulent, medium generous medium fine mousse, bright acidity, strong mineral and a long concentrated sweet yellow fruit driven finish with almond paste and cinnamon at the end. This is a rich slightly oxidative style of Champagne.

    September 20, 2019 - 🏅 Rating 97/100 (4,7⭐)

    Powerful massive wine. You can't even call it champagne as it is more of a wine than bubbly. Served after spending 2+ hours in decanter to open up its aromas.
    It further developed in my glass for the next 90 minutes showing one layer after another. Full of everything.
    Selosse style is on the extreme of oxidation scale and might not be appreciated for some winelovers.

    But for me it is one of the most complex champagnes with enormous breadth and depth of aromas and flavours. It just blows your mind away.

    One could argue if the terroir is actually present or that is just winemaking style. I assure you, once you taste different Lieux-dits you will see how different they are.

    Terroir of Le Mesnil sur Oger. That is one of Lieux-dits collection of Mr. Anselme Selosse.
    100% Chardonnay
    fermented and aged in oak barrels. Mini-solera of 8 consecutive vintages. Disgorged in July, 2018.

    September 13, 2019 - Det. 24.02.2015 vintage 2008-2008. Druk from Zalto Universal, colour golden yellow, nose apples, litchi,baked lemon, taste big with long aftertaste, some minerals and fresh acid attack. Amazing Champagne after this other Champagnes are just bubblewater!1
