Together with Solessence Nature Brut is the calling card of Jean-Marc Sélèque: vinification of the 2/3 bases in steel and 1/3 in wood, structure and freshness are opposed, creating a pleasant harmony on the palate. Pass-par-tout champagne, from the aperitif to the whole meal. Solessence is born from the philosophy of the Maison: plowing of soils, rigorous pruning and control of yields, favoring the natural balance and biodiversity. Respect for life and wine with sustainable farming practices.

Technical informations

Production area: 7 villages between the Vallée de la Marne and the Coteaux south of Epernay: Pierry, Moussy, Epernay, Mardeuil, Dizy, Boursault and Vertus.

Grapes and assembly: blend of Solessence Brut Nature + 10% Meunier of maceration + 5% red wine from Pinot Noir: therefore 45% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier et 15% Pinot Noir. Harvest 2016.

Soil: mainly siliceous clays on chalky-chalky subsoil.

Vinification and ageing: vinification of each single parcel. Fermentation and malolactic fermentation of 70% in steel and 30% of wines in oak barrels without malolactic fermentation. 40% reserve wines, stored in large tanks and wooden barrels as a perpetual reserve since 2000. Minimal intervention for the wine. Natural cold stabilization, without clarification and filtration. Bottling in spring. Ageing on yeasts for at least 24 months or more.

Sensory

Colour: bright antique rosé

Perlage: intense, fine and persistent.

Bouquet: a pure and complex bouquet of strawberries, a touch of blood orange, gentle notes of rhubarb, rye toast, chalky soil tones, a bit of clove-like spices and a topnote of rose petals. 

Taste: on the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and zesty, with excellent depth at the core, bright acids, fine mousse and impressive backend mineral drive on the long, poised and beautifully balanced finish.
