(Version Originale) presents slightly darker, more burnished tonalities of Chardonnay. Almond, marzipan, dried rose petals, spices and anise blossom in an ample, generous Champagne built on volume, but supported by insistent veins of minerality. Hints of trademark Selosse oxidation make the V.O. a bit more eccentric, especially for readers who might not be familiar with these Champagnes. V.O. emerges from parcels in Avize, Cramant and Oger, all Grand Cru villages. The vintages are 2006, 2005 and 2004. This bottle was disgorged on October 15, 2013 and bottled with no dosage.

Deeply pitched nectarine, poached pear and buttered toast aromas are brightened by dusty minerals and lemon pith. Deep, expansive orchard and pit fruit flavors show a hint of toffee and are lifted and sharpened by suggestions of white pepper and bitter quinine. Distinctly rich but quite lively as well, finishing very long, with firm stony grip and lingering spiciness. -- Josh Raynolds
