About This Wine

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.


About JM Seleque

The Sélèque family's first vineyard holdings in Pierry were put down by Henri Sélèque in 1965.

Henri's son Richard began making small amounts of grower Champagne through the 1970s. Today, Henri's grandson, Jean-Marc has taken up the mantle and propelled his family estate to become one of the most talked about labels of Epernay's small-production grower vanguard.

Jean-Marc has gained experience making sparkling wines around the world, from the Yarra Valley to the US of A. He has taken all this knowledge and reinvigorated his family label with a modern approach to the craft and is now considered one of Champagne's most exciting young guns.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"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)


"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

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
