96 JS / 95 VM / 93 WA / 93 WS

An assemblage of 2010/09/08 with pristine chalky and stony elements, lemon and lime citrus, dried yellow flowers and a gentle nutmeg-tinged spice overlay. Energetic palate with powerful and seamless lemon and peach fruits, minerals grow through the saline, acid-drenched finish. Drink now. - James Suckling

The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Initial is absolutely impeccable. Its hard to know where to start. What is more impressive: the definition of aromas and flavors, or is it the wines sublime texture? The Initial is remarkable for its nuance, clarity and overall sense of harmony. The mousse is impeccably fine from start to finish, while the expression of Chardonnay is all elegance. Juicy apricots, peaches, flowers, crushed rocks and spices meld together on the seamless, utterly impeccable finish. Initial is Selosses largest production cuvee and is a blend of fruit from Avize, Cramant and Oger, all Grand Cru villages. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Anselme Selosse's NV Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Initial is a pure Chardonnay sourced in the lower, more clayey slopes of the villages of Avize, Cramant and Oger. This release of the cuvée represents the 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages, and it opens with an intense, perfectly ripe, tropical-scented bouquet with chalky notes. Ripe, round and very elegant on the palate, this is an expressive, chalky and persistent Blanc de Blancs that was disgorged in December 2017 (dosage: less than 6 grams per liter). Tasted at the domaine in April 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

Bright, with a nose of graphite, pastry dough and spring blossom leading to flavors of white peach, toasted almond, fleur de sel and lemon curd. Disgorged May 2016. Drink now through 2022. - Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator
