After our relaxed lunch @ Bollinger in Aÿ we asked Yoann, our driver to take us to Avize to visit our long time friend Anselme Selosse at his and wife Corinnes beautiful hotel Lés Avisés. During the whole time the Selosse’s Jack Russel ‘Uva the dog’ kept an eye on us!
RICHARD JUHLIN ON ANSELME SELOSSE I’ve mentioned the name of Anselme Selosse on several occasions earlier in my books, partly because he’s my favorite grower, and partly because he’s the most original winemaker in all of Champagne. The charismatic Anselme is influenced by his time at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, where he studied together with several famous winemakers from Burgundy. Anselme was determined to attempt to make a great champagne using Burgundy methods.
