Description

From 7 villages across Coteaux Sud d’Epernay, Vallée de la Marne, and Vertus in the Côte des Blancs the J M Sélèque Solessence Rosé has the same base as the balance, with the addition of a saignee of Pinot Meunier, and added Pinot Noir juice.

All combine to create a harmonious blend of flavours, the pedigree of PN, the fruit power of Meunier, and the freshness of their house blend, intertwined in a wine with luscious fruit, sweet baked goods, and sweet spice.

Pale, and delicate, the wine is 40% from their perpetual blend, with the bulk made up of younger wine.

45% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier (of which 10% skin-contact Meunier Infusion from Les Charmiers, Pierry 1er Cru) and 15% Pinot Noir of which 5% is Coteaux Champenois from Les Gayères, Pierry 1er Cru). Fruit from seven crus on mostly flinty clay on chalky subsoil: Pierry, Moussy, épernay, Mardeuil, Dizy, Boursault, Vertus. Base vintage 2018, with 40% of the blend from wines in perpetual reserve. 70% stainless steel tank and 30% oak barrels. No fining or filtration. Two years ageing under crown seal. Dosage 2g/L.

"The fruity flavour of the Meunier, the pedigree of Pinot Noir, the freshness of our Solessence blend. The harmony of flavours."

94 Points - "The delicate colour belies the depth in the glass, it is a pale and delicate salmon with gentle characteristics of strawberries, raspberries, chocolate and ripe peaches. On the palate, the full power comes through with mulberries, blood plums, rhubarb, redcurrant, vanilla, baked plums danish pastries and a sprinkle of sweet spice. Delicious." Curley Haslam-Coates (Wine Front)

88 Points - "The NV Extra Brut Rosé Solessence is a bright, beautifully lifted Champagne. In this range, it comes across as a bit ethereal and not quite as resonant as the other wines. Crushed flowers, dried red berry fruit are nicely laced together. This release is based on 2017, with 40% reserve wines." Antonio Galloni (Vinous)

    A superb expression of rose Champagne

    I'm a big fan of the wines of JM Seleque and this is an excellent entry into his portfolio. It's an expressive, vinous rose Champagne with length for days. Highly recommended

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
