Implausible Harmony:
Selosse Cuvee Initial Blanc de Blancs NV

Posted by Ian McFadden

Initial is my go-to bottle of Selosse.

Its energy and punchy minerality are endlessly appealing.

Initial's hallmarks are intensity and a fascinating, multifaceted complexity. It's a Blanc de Blancs of seemingly implausible harmony, combining outrageous purity with enveloping power. There's electric currents of citrus and minerality, while simultaneously possessing a profound textural complexity.

Selosse's Champagnes are some of the most captivating wines around. I can't think of another Champagne that delivers as much personality in such a seamless and finessed way.

The Initial offers a perfect and thrilling summary of what makes Selosse so exciting. In recent years, Initial has become very difficult to find in quantity. I should warn you that quantities are extremely limited.
