    Wine Advocate Notes
    98 Points, Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru Les Carelles boasts extraordinary power, breadth and sheer richness. Layers of butter, pastry, tropical fruit, spices and smoke literally bursts from the glass as this exotic, heady Champagne struts its stuff. I imagine the Carelles might be too much for some readers, but for those seeking to get to the heart of the Selosse style; here it is. This is a dazzling showing. Disgorgement date: April 25, 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. Despite all of the acclaim and recognition Anselme Selosse has received over the years, he continues to push the envelope of what Champagne is and can be. The new lieu-dit Champagnes, which now encompass six different bottlings - all of them multi-vintage blends - are off the charts, but frankly, so are the rest of the wines. Readers who want to learn more about Selosse might want to take a look at my recent videos on our site. Selosse fans might also want to consider a stay at Les Avizes, the hotel Anselme Selosse and his wife Corinne recently opened in Avize, which is probably the best way to visit this iconic producer." 11/12

    "Selosse's NV Extra-Brut Les Carelles, from a parcel in Mesnil, brings together some of the exuberance of the Chemin de Chalons and the tension of the Chantereines. The Carelles is a wine of contrasts. At times rich and intense, while at others remarkably light on its feet, the Carelles is constantly changing in the glass. Even with all of the nuances what stands out most is the wine's sublime, pure texture. Hints of graphite and mineral-inflected notes linger on the finish. The Carelles is a nectar for the Gods and Godesses. I can't think of too many other Champagnes I deeply crave this much right now. Readers who can find the current release should not hesitate. This is magnificent juice. The Carelles is composed of vintages 2006, 2005, 2004 and 2003. This bottle was disgorged on April 10, 2013. Dosage is 2 grams/liter.98" Antonio Galloni, VM 11/13

    97 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The NV Extra-Brut Le Mesnil sur Oger Les Carelles (2011) soars from the glass with stunning richness. A slight overtone of reduction adds freshness to the orange peel, pastry, passion fruit and spice flavors. Creamy and expansive on the palate, with explosive energy, the Carelles dazzles from start to finish. Tasted again with some air, the Carelles was even deeper and more expressive. What a wine! Disgorged January 18, 2018 and bottled with no dosage." 7/18
