Disgorged in March 2019 with two grams per litre dosage, the Chardonnay-based 2013 Extra-Brut Partition is a blend of seven barrels, each derived from a different lieu-dit, from four different communes. It opens in the glass with an incipiently complex bouquet of crisp yellow orchard fruit, green mango, fresh pastry and white flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, tight-knit and chiselled palate that’s concentrated and vinous but youthfully austere, with uncompromisingly bracing acids despite evident fruit maturity—an impression surely emphasized by its recent disgorgement, as the wine unwinds very promisingly when followed over several days. The finish is saline and penetrating. While this is sufficiently dry and tangy that it will mostly appeal to unabashed acid-lovers, it’s a beautifully rendered cuvée from Sélèque.
