last week, arriving in the late afternoon at domaine jacques selosse, in avize, france, i was besides myself. i was so looking forward to meeting anselme selosse. his champagne is a luvFIND (my dear friend, aldo, introduced me) and a treat to drink. Anselme Selosse, in 1980, took over his father’s estate, and since has been making the exquisite and rare Jacques Selosse champagne. anselme selosse is a renaissance man with a contagious effervescent personality to match his champagne. he exudes a genuine joie de vivre. connecting to that spirit, i felt like alice in wonderland. it was just a thrill being received by him and the extravagant tasting he extended was exuberant. i popped the bottle, but not the moment. these moments retain a lasting effervescence in the archives of the mind. don’t just pop a moment. finding and retaining ‘joie de vivre’ moments is just the thing for thebestdressup now!
