(JG95-96+ points) This wine had only been disgorged five weeks before my visit to the cellars, so I have scored it in a range, as it was still difficult to see if it was only going to be stellar, or if its destiny was even higher! This bottling from the Sous Le Mont vineyard was from the base year of 2007, and as the first release of this was from 2003, it means that its reserve “solera” now has four vintages with which to work. Readers may recall from last year’s profile on the domaine, the vineyard lies in the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, on the same hillside as Clos des Goisses, with Sous Le Mont on the east-facing side of the hill, where it receives the morning sun. There is a strong vein of magnesium in the soil here, which lends a nice sense of youthful reserve to the wine and, to Monsieur Selosse’s mind, truly defines this terroir. The superb and youthful nose offers up scents of white cherries, apple, plenty of smokiness, a great base of chalky minerality and gentle notes of bread dough in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nascently complex, with a lovey core, great mineral drive, elegant mousse and stunning length and grip on the focused and racy finish. This is going to be great wine! 2017-2035+.

A Blanc de Noirs from an east-facing site in the heart of Aÿ, this has depth, richness and a deeper savory edge to the nose. Aromas of dark tobacco, plenty of dry roasted spices, nut biscuits, musk and dried red fruits... A Blanc de Noirs from an east-facing site in the heart of Aÿ, this has depth, richness and a deeper savory edge to the nose. Aromas of dark tobacco, plenty of dry roasted spices, nut biscuits, musk and dried red fruits. The palate is full of compressed power, where the Mesnil lieu-dit has a verticality which pushes on a horizontal plane with boldness, density and real substance. Flavors run through striking blueberry and red apples, heading to salted caramel and praline on the finish. Commanding Champagne. Drink now.

The most rose-colored and aromatic of the three Pinots in the lieu-dit collection, the NV Extra-Brut Mareuil sur Aÿ Sous Le Mont lifts from the glass with exotic aromatics and delicate fruit.

The most rose-colored and aromatic of the three Pinots in the lieu-dit collection, the NV Extra-Brut Mareuil sur Aÿ Sous Le Mont lifts from the glass with exotic aromatics and delicate fruit. Gracious and feminine in style, the Sous Le Mont nevertheless possesses terrific energy and cut. I am not sure there is much upside from cellaring bottles further, but this year's release is a big step up from some of the earlier versions. That much is clear. Disgorged April 14, 2014 and bottled with no dosage.
