Jacques Selosse La Cote Faron NV (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
98 JS / 97 AG
Spanning 2010-1994 this is a steeper site in Aÿ with less clay than Ambonnay. It shows bright and elegant red berry fruit aromas of strawberries and raspberries. The palate is quite svelte and elegant but possesses phenomenal power and tangy, sapid appeal. The finish holds fine with mineral-flecked grapefruit flavors. The nose speaks more to the grape, the palate to the terroir. A fascinating and brilliant Champagne. Drink now. - James Suckling
The NV (2006) Extra Brut Aÿ La Côte Faron, formerly known as Contraste, is once again one of the most impressive wines in the range. It is also the wine that served as the template for what today are the six lieu-dit wines. As such, the Côte Faron includes wines going back to 1994, which is one of the reasons it is so complex. Powerful, dense and creamy, La Côte Faron offers superb richness and palate presence from start to finish. All the elements are simply in the right place. On this evening, the Côte Faron is a total turn-on. Disgorged March 8, 2013.
