‘As in the previous 2015-based edition, the 2016-based Chemin de Chalons is butterier and more typical of the village than before with clear similarities to both Bonnaire and Diebolt-Vallois Fleur de Passion, although Selosse’s unmistakable and personally unique base notes dominate emphatically. The champagne deviates quite sharply from the other two vineyard wines of the Côte des Blancs, Les Carelles from Le Mesnil and Les Chanteraines from Avize in the last two versions. A bit flatter in Carcasonne.’
