Jacques Selosse, Aÿ, La Côte Faron, Extra Brut NV

RRP £250-335

The most renowned grower of all, Anselme Selosse makes Champagnes unlike any other, marked by a mouth-filling richness and kaleidoscopic complexity of flavour. In this wine, Pinot Noir from the vineyard of La Côte Faron is aged in a solera system similar to Sherry, blending multiple vintages together in barrel. The current release contains all vintages from 2010 to 1994, creating a multidimensional array of layers on the palate that persist with marvellous length and detail, anchored by spicy, saline notes of soil.
