The NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru Les Carelles boasts extraordinary power, breadth and sheer richness. Layers of butter, pastry, tropical fruit, spices and smoke literally bursts from the glass as this exotic, heady Champagne struts its stuff. I imagine the Carelles might be too much for some readers, but for those seeking to get to the heart of the Selosse style; here it is. This is a dazzling showing. Disgorgement date: April 25, 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. - Antonio Galloni

The brighter, more focused side of Chardonnay screams out of the glass in the NV (2008) Le Mesnil sur Oger Les Carelles. Here the flavors are distinctly high-toned, with plenty of citrus peel, white pepper, smoke and slate. Vivid and finely sculpted throughout, with a slightly reductive quality, the Mesnil remains tightly wound and in need of time in bottle. There is an implosive energy that is just waiting to emerge fully. When it does, the Mesnil will be utterly captivating. Actually, it already is. Disgorged February 17, 2015. Dosage is 2 grams/liter.

Smoky pear and peach nectar scents are complicated by toasty lees, vanilla and chamomile. Velvety, dense and expansivee, offering toasty citrus and orchard fruit flavors given spine by juicy acidity and a strong mineral quality. The toasty note comes back strong on the mineral-driven finish, which lingers with superb tenacity. -- Josh Raynolds
