Dear Anselme,

I’ve tasted all Your champagnes since my Selosse debute back in 1995 with the 1986 ‘Millésime’. The wine that gave You the title of ‘Winemaker of the Year in France 1994.’ by La Revue de Vins de France. The very same year that You started your ‘Solera’, later named ‘Origine’ and now ‘Substance’.

Every year since then I’ve purchased all The Selosse Champagnes that I could get my hands on. There are many people, known and unknown, who comes to The Champagnebar by Richard Juhlin during the years that all have opinions on Your champagnes. Most of them get a special kind of glimts in their eyes when they speak about You and Your champagnes. The idea of setting upp a small vertical of Your wines is always present. The trouble is of course that Your Champagnes are soo good and so rare that there is always the problem that one open up the bottles to soon …

However, this Saturday I gathered 20 champagne lovers at The Champagnebar by Richard Juhlin and set up a ‘mini-vertical’ of five different disgorgements of ‘Substance’.

It’s with great humbleness and gratitude that I write this open blog-post to show my sincere apreciation of Your skills och craftmanship. Thanks for existing Anselme!

Sthlm the 29th of November
