The Lieux Dits of Anselme Selosse Tasting
Once-in-a-lifetime Tasting of Selosse Champagnes
Time 7 pm
Anselme Selosse is arguably the most influential Champagne winemaker. His wines are extremely rare and much sought after. Being the most coveted bottles in the Champagne realm, this tasting is a special occasion for the champagne aficionado. The tasting will begin with Version Originale Blanc de Blancs Extra-Brut Grand Cru.
Selosse makes single-vineyard wines from six villages, 'Lieux-Dits,' to illustrate his ideas about terroir. The six wines are made in a mini-Solera style to minimize the effects of each vintage. The tasting will consist of the following three Lieux-Dits. The additional Lieux-Dits will be available for purchase at the event. A minimal quantity per wine is available, and event guests will have first pick.
Aÿ "La Côte Faron" (formerly known as" Contraste"; all Pinot Noir, debut 2003 base).
Mareuil-sur-Aÿ “Sous le Mont” (all Pinot Noir, debut 2005 base)
Ambonnay “Le Bout du Clos” (all Pinot Noir, debut 2004 base)
