    Producer

    Jean-Marc Sélèque’s grandfather Henri planted his first vines in Pierry in 1965, a tradition taken up when father Richard began bottling his grower Champagne in the ‘70s. Jean-Marc himself took over duties in 2008 and began transforming this into the very model of a top-flight grower it is today. The estate has been renamed and the range redefined, while the completion of the new cellar in 2015 is a further statement of intent. Pierry itself is a premier cru village just outside Épernay, known (and increasingly so, with Jean-Marc as flag-bearer) as prime terroir for distinguished Meunier. A further six villages within a tiny radius account for the rest of the fruit. These are: Moussy and Épernay (situated, like Pierry, on the Coteaux Sud d’Épernay); Dizy, Mardeuil and Boursault in the Vallée de la Marne; and Vertus in the Côte des Blancs.

    Region

    Champagne is a region that has undergone profound change in the last few decades. We are finally treating it as a wine instead of a celebratory splurge, the farming has improved exponentially and the explosion of grower Champagnes has lead to increased diversity of style across the region. Of course the ‘Grand Marques’ remain and their prestige cuvees still command a premium, but at the grower end of the spectrum, great purity and value can be found wherever you look. It has always been a region where blending across different vineyards to achieve a house style had been refined to an artform, despite the profundity of Krug’s Clos du Mesnil and Clos d’Ambonnay, many Champenois consider their Grand Cuvee to be their greatest wine. That said, today we are seeing an increasing number of single-vineyard wines and the deep-dive into the regions terroir such as the exciting Côteaux Sud d'Epernay continues. Local Knowledge: A visit to Jacques Selosse and a meal at their restaurant, ‘Les Avisés’ is akin to a religious experience.
