Winemaking Notes: Anselme and Corinne Selosse adapt their techniques each time they craft a cuvée. Their goal is always to maximize each wine's expression of identity and terroir. Selosse features some of the lowest yielding vines in the region, leading to the region's ripest, most expressive fruit. Malolactic fermentations are free to occur as each individual lot evolves. Wines are typically held for one year in barrel, with 16% bew barreks added to the rotation each year.
