Reviews 96 points Wine Advocate "All the 2019 disgorgements of Selosse's emblematic Blanc de Blancs cuvees are brilliant, and revisiting the November 2019 disgorgment of the NV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru V. O. (Version Originale), I clearly underrated this wine on release. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of dried fruits, citrus oil, toasted nuts, drawn butter, yellow orchard fruit, clear honey and fenugreek, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and vinous, with terrific concentration allied with excellent tension. In fact, if this disgorgement stands out, it's for its especially notable cut and precision. Concluding with a long, sapid finish, it's a bottle that doesn't survive very long after opening in our household. (WK)" 96 points Vinous "The NV Extra-Brut V.O. (Version Originale) (2015) is super-expressive right out of the gate. It marries richness with translucence in stunning style. Dried flowers, mint, pine, spice, baked apple tart and brioche add gorgeous aromatic presence. In this release, the V.O. is so compelling. As always, V.O. is a blend of parcels on the upper slopes of Avize, from vintages 2015, 2014 and 2013 in this release. Disgorged: April 5, 2021. (AG)"

About Jacques Selosse

Domaine Jacques Selosse, a small family-run Champagne house located in Avize, is renowned for producing some of the finest and most sought-after Champagnes in the world. The estate is run by Anselme's son Guillaume, who continues his father's legacy of producing exceptional Champagnes that are both complex and elegant.

Anselme Selosse, who took over the family Domaine in 1980, was one of the early pioneers of the grower champagne movement. He reduced the yields of his family’s grand cru holdings in Avize, Cramant, and Oger, moved to sustainable farming methods, and put the focus on the quality of the grapes and soils. This trailblazing effort has transformed the local landscape for artisanal growers and influenced new generations to bring soul back to Champagne.

The Selosse style is characterized by its use of old vine, organic fruit, fractional (solera) blending, and extended time on the lees, giving the Champagnes a deep, rich, and complex flavor profile. The estate is well-known for its extended sur lie aging, with some cuvées spending upwards of 10 years on the lees before release. In addition to its attention to detail in the vineyard and winemaking, the house is also known for its innovative and non-traditional labeling, with each bottle featuring a unique painting by a local artist.

Guillaume's winemaking reflects his belief in the grapes and their unique terroirs. He ferments and ages his wines in oak, leaves the wine to settle on fine lees, uses very low doses of sulfur, and keeps his dosages to a minimum. He blends two levels of reserve wines to create his cuvées, with most wines spending up to six years in the bottle before disgorgement. With only a few thousand cases produced annually, these wines are sought after by wine lovers and collectors around the world for their boldness, complexity, and charm.
