“It is a mish-mash of different styles and eras, but this diversity gives it its soul. The house has the advantage of having a view over the vines. On three sides you can observe the vines and the seasonal vineyard activities, tractors, smoke, and grape-pickers. The house is built right on the hillside, which gives access to both the ‘crowned mountain’ and the plain. An ideal location to make you aware of how Champagne has its source in a unique geography.”
-Anselme Selosse, Proprietor
Originally set up in the 1950s, Champagne Jacques Selosse is a highly regarded Champagne house that is known for utilizing unique methods of production. The house uses a solera system which is more commonly associated with Sherry production as well as, in more recent years, been the first sparkling wine house to advocate showcasing the terroir of Champagne. In 1980, Jacques’ son, Anselme, took over the estate and changed the process of how the wines were being made. He cut the yields, rid the land of chemicals, and began focusing on grand cru vineyards. Additionally, dosage is kept at an absolute minimum and in fall of 2010 Jacques Selosse made headlines when they released a collection of six different single-vineyard wines from honored villages in the region. Today the domaine produces nearly 5,000 cases of superior Champagne every year full of emotion, memories, and nonconformity.
