Selosse, Jacques: millésime 2005

Tasted November 2016 at Grand Tasting Paris. Tasted out of Riedel Riesling Grand Cru and Zalto Burgunder. Made of  100% Chardonnay. Very aromatic and smooth aroma of english orange marmelade, lemon peel, ripe jackfruit and pomelo, overripe mirabel plum, glue, fermented fruits, ginseng, candied ginger, typical Selossian oxidative notes,  green tea, sweet scented bedstraw and bison grass. Very peculiar indeed. The mouthfeel is soft and mouth caressing. On the palate you get candied orange, Charentais melon, a hint of pouriture noble and a touch of Manuka honey together with complex fermented tones and mild herbs. The finish is long with orange, white pepper and soft woody spices. Yet another ethereal wine of Selosse and a lovely expression of the vintage.
