Selosse Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger Les Carelles

Posted by Ian McFadden

All of Selosse's lieux-dits are breathtakingly original and utterly compelling. With that said, I have a real soft spot for Carelles.

The wine has an astonishing resonance and finesse. Carelles works on an epic scale with incredible nuance and refinement.

I'm happy to offer Selosse's Carelles for $394.95 per bottle.

Mesnil produces absolutely magical Chardonnay, and Selosse's Carelles takes it to a singular and utterly compelling level.

In some ways, Carelles is a really unusual expression of Mesnil. It has a richness that people don't generally associate with Mesnil - it's as much a sign of Selosse's distinctive style as it is a testament to his ultra-conscientious work in the vineyards.

That's only part of the story. Selosse's parcel in Mesnil is incredibly chalky. For all of the wine's breadth, there's a distinctive chalky minerality and a super-refined and precise kinetic energy.

There's no doubt that Carelles is one of the most thought-provoking wines out there. There is an outrageous spectrum and multi-dimensional presentation.

Finding Selosse's lieux-dits in quantity is always difficult. Carelles is one of the most sought after, making it even more difficult. This will not stick around. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
