Implausible Harmony: Selosse Cuvée Initial NV

Posted by Ian McFadden

This is the bottle of Selosse that I reach for most often.

Initial highlights the magic of Selosse - it's a Blanc de Blancs of seemingly implausible harmony, combining outrageous purity with enveloping power. Its energy and punchy minerality are endlessly appealing.

Initial's hallmarks are intensity and an endlessly fascinating multifaceted complexity. 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. It's always a pleasure to offer.
