Selosse Ambonnay Le Bout du Clos NV

Posted by Ian McFadden

Selosse is revered for his singular, often mind-blowing Champagnes.

His lieux-dits are nothing short of magical. They take the ridiculous resonance, the breadth of complexity and the finesse that are Selosse's calling cards to the extreme.

Today we focus on Le Bout du Clos from Ambonnay. The grandeur of terroir is front and center. It's a wine of tremendous refinement, class and length managing at once an ethereal grace and a searing, concentrated focus.

Ambonnay is one of the most exalted Grand Crus of Champagne. Selosse's Le Bout du Clos exploits all the potential of Ambonnay and delivers something that's absolutely thrilling. Le Bout du Clos offers up a saturating chalky mineral intensity combined with a ridiculous precision and energy matched with ultra-clear red fruits. The wine is mainly composed of Pinot Noir with a very small amount of Chardonnay.

Every time I taste Le Bout du Clos it's a jaw-dropping experience. It's so multi-dimensional, so exactingly rendered and unlike anything else.

This is a small parcel and we've limited the list to a very small group of people. Still, I expect to be allocating.
