About Jacques Selosse
Since taking over the family Domaine, Jacques Sélosse, in 1980, Anselme Sélosse has taken Champagne by storm. As one of the early pioneers of the grower champagne movement, Anselme radically reduced the yields of his family’s grand cru holdings in Avize, Cramant and Oger, moved to sustainable methods of farming, and put the focus on the quality of the grapes and soils. His trailblazing efforts have profoundly transformed the local landscape for artisanal growers and influenced new generations to bring soul back to Champagne.
Anselme’s winemaking reflects his adamant belief in the grapes and his terroirs to craft the style of his wines. He ferments and ages his wines in oak, leaves the wine to settle on fine lees, uses very low doses of sulphur, and keeps his dosages to an absolute minimum. Anselme blends two levels of reserve wines to create his cuvées, with most wines spending up to six years in bottle before disgorgement. With only a few thousand cases produced annually, these wines are coveted the world over for their boldness, complexity and charm.
