Our favorite producer in Avize Domaine Jacques Selosse was burglarized during the night of Thursday March 21st, 2013. Apparently they stole 81/2 pallets, aprox 6 000 bottles of Initial, Version Originale and Substance which were readied for export to the U.S. and Japan. The stolen bottles have a worth of 300 000 euros.
What s more disturbing is that the burglars also stole 16 000 labels and 12 000 neck labels which most likely will be used in the manufacturing of counterfeit products.
Anselme Selosse said; ‘we are asking all buyers to be on the lookout for suspicious pricing or sudden “unlimited” availability of Selosse champagne.’ He is also tipping the consumers that Jacques Selosse champagne uses bottles made of black glass and not the traditional dark green glass
