Wine Comments
"The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Initial is absolutely impeccable. It’s hard to know where to start. What is more impressive: the definition of aromas and flavours, or is it the wine’s sublime texture? The Initial is remarkable for its nuance, clarity and overall sense of harmony. The mousse is impeccably fine from start to finish, while the expression of Chardonnay is all elegance. Juicy apricots, peaches, flowers, crushed rocks and spices meld together on the seamless, utterly impeccable finish. Initial is Selosse’s largest production cuvee and is a blend of fruit from Avize, Cramant and Oger, all Grand Cru villages." Wine Advocate: 95

The Domaine
Located 150 km east of Paris the Champagne wine region, covering just over 33,000 ha and producing almost 320 million bottles each year, is one of the most prestigious wine regions in the world. Vines have been grown in this area between Reims and Châlons-en-Champagne since Gallo-Roman times, but it was in the early 18th century that the blends of various vintages and the vinification method came together to produce the sparkling wines that were to become famous all over the world. Since that time, Champagne wines have been instantly recognisable – not just by their bubbles, but also by their freshness, finesse, liveliness, their thick-glass bottles and their corks held in place by a wire cap. Defined for the first time in 1927, the Champagne production region is divided into four areas: Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, Côte des Blancs and Côte des Bar (the southernmost part of the appellation).

"No champagne grower is as renowned or as influential as Anselme Selosse. Whether directly or indirectly, he has inspired an entire generation of young winegrowers in the region, and among consumers, his champagnes have become some of the most sought-after wines in the world." -Peter Liem
