JM Seleque Solessence N.V. 1500mL-Magnum

Wine Front 94 Points!

"The Solessence Brut NV delivers lovely aromatic complexity in its blend of apple, pear, meunier floral tones, brioche, chalky minerality, almond and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and complex, with a fine core, pinpoint bubbles, fine focus and grip and a long, well-balanced and still youthful finish. This is a beautiful bottle of bubbly, with the nose really starting to show some secondary layers, now that it is nearly two years out from its disgorgement, but with the palate still zesty and loaded with the verve of youth. Jean-Marc Sélèque is one of the brightest young stars in Champagne! Fine, fine non-vintage Brut." - John Gilman

"The NV Extra Brut Solessence 7 Villages is bright, focused and full of energy, not to mention a terrific introduction to these Champagnes and Jean-Marc Sélèque's style. The low dosage of 3 grams per liter gives the Solessence real energy and briskness throughout. Bright Chardonnay top notes meld together with the textural richness of the Pinots in a wonderfully complete, expressive Champagne. Hints of dried flowers, sage, mint, red plum and citrus peel add the closing shades of nuance." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Tightly wound, bracing Champagne of velocity and intensity. A supersonic pulse of tart, green apple, citrus, faint ginger biscuit in flavours, with a perfume that echoes the same but with more volume. Texture is chalky, bubbles tight and firm, almost aggressive, but doing a good job of refreshment factor. It feels really un-evolved in a sense, but the drinkability remains and freshness and mouth-puckering freshness are the result. This is really good." - Mike Bennie
