...especially open in this release, with notable texture, richness and resonance. Lemon peel, white flowers and almonds all open up in the glass, followed by honey and slight elements of Burgundian-like reduction. Initial is always Selosse's most vibrant wine, as it is once again this year. The pure breadth and verticality of these Chardonnays from Avize, Cramant Oger is compelling. Readers who want to explore Anselme Selosse's wines should start here...This is a fabulous showing... Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Selosse's wines always show better with post-disgorgement age. This bottle was disgorged in 2010, and it's really starting to pick up steam now.
