2009 jacques selosse, millesime
Why We're Buying
Jacques Selosse Millésime is a non-vintage Champagne that blends the estate's top cuvées from different years. The vins de reserve are carefully combined to achieve the optimal complexion, body, flavor, and acidity. The result is a Champagne that's approaching four digits in price and appreciated 29% in the first half of 2021.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Disgorged in January 2020, the 2009 Extra-Brut Premier Cru Millésime represents a new direction for Selosse's vintage bottling, as Guillaume Selosse wanted to produce this cuvée from all of the six villages in which the domaine's holdings are located. The resulting wine is spectacular, soaring from the glass with a deep and complex bouquet of mandarin orange, honeycomb, ripe peaches, freshly baked bread, almond paste and dried apricots. Full-bodied, deep and complete, it's elegantly muscular and multidimensional, with extraordinary mid-palate amplitude, ripe but lively acids and a long, intensely sapid finish.
