The NV Substance, Selosse’s first solera-style Champagne is quite restrained in this release with more freshness and fewer oxidative notes than are typical. Honey, graphite, dried apricots, wild flowers and anise blossom in an ample, resonant Chardonnay loaded with personality. The flavors are remarkably bright, pure and focused. This bottle was disgorged September 12, 2013. Dosage is 0.7 grams per liter.
Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020
