Tasting Notes

Vinous 92

The NV Initial is fresh, bright and invigorating. Lemon confit, white flower, mint and chalk open up nicely in the glass. This is a fairly soft, open-knit version of Initial that will drink well with minimal cellaring. As always, there is a good bit of freshness, but the edges are a bit softer than is typically the case at this state. The current release is a blend of vintages 2010, 2009 and 2008. Disgorged April 2016. Dosage is 1.5 grams per liter. [Antonio Galloni, 07/01/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027

Robert Parker 94

The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Initial shows unusual richness and depth for this bottling. This is an especially vinous, powerful Initial endowed with tons of fruit married to Selosse’s trademark textural finesse. The aromas and flavors are a touch forward, suggesting the wine is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. The Initial is the entry-level wine at Selosse, but is the equivalent to most producers’ tete de cuvee. Disgorged October 21st, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016. [Antonio Galloni, 01/12/2010]
