Implausible Harmony:
Selosse Cuvée Initial NV

Posted by Ian McFadden

Put a glass of Selosse in front of me and chances are it will blow me away. No matter of many times I drink the wines, I still find them completely riveting.

Out of Selosse's line-up, Initial is the Selosse bottling that I reach for most often. Its energy and punchy minerality is endlessly appealing.

Initial has electric currents of citrus and minerality, while simultaneously possessing a profound textural complexity. The wine is so intense and multifaceted that it offers endless fascination.

Initial highlights the magic of Selosse - it's a Blanc de Blancs of seemingly implausible harmony, combining outrageous purity with enveloping power. I can't think of another Champagne that delivers as much personality in such a seamless and finessed way.

There's no doubt that Selosse is an icon. His are some of the most captivating wines around. It's always a pleasure to offer them.
