Robert Parker – 95
Selosse’s 2005 Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Millésime displays a golden-yellow color followed by a very intense yet super pure and terroir-driven bouquet with rich, beautifully evolved ripe fruit aromas along with chalky and iodine notes. Likewise, the palate features richness and intensity combined with iodine purity and terrible freshness (dosage: 1.3 grams per liter). This lovely, oxidative 2005 reveals tremendous finesse and elegance and finishes with great intensity, length and complexity. Very fine mousse. Tasted twice, at the domaine in Avize and during the Trait d’Union tasting chez Larmandier-Bernier, both in April 2018.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040
