Jacques Selosse "Initial", Brut - NV

Item # 19103 750mL

The Initiale from Selosse is a Blanc de Blancs made from a blend of 3 vintages from the fruit of the villages of Avize, Oger and Cramant. All of the Champagnes from the Jacques Selosses domaine are fermented and aged in wood casks (mostly old), left on the lees for extended aging and then bottled with minimal sulphur. This is a complex Champagne, considered idiosyncratic by some but heralded as the ultimate, rich style of Champagne by fans. Enjoy with a truffled risotto.

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking world. It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...
