93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Based on the 2018 vintage and disgorged in January 2021, the latest NV Extra-Brut Solessence Rosé offers up lovely aromas of sweet red berries, anise, bitter orange and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, round and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit, bright acids and a charming, seamless profile, concluding with a sapid finish. This is an especially demonstrative rendition of this cuvée that's showing very well out of the gates.

91pts Wine Enthusiast

It's the Pinot Meunier, both in the Champagne blend and in the red addition, that makes this charming wine. It gives the wine its floral character, rich red fruits and subtle poise between freshness and a crisp texture that is comes from the low dosage. The wine has some bottle age and is ready to drink.

Winemaker Notes

45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Meunier, 15% Pinot Noir from seven villages: three villages in the Coteaux Sud d'Epernay (Pierry, Moussy, and Epernay); Vallée de la Marne (Mardeuil, Dizy, and Boursault); and from Vertus in the Côte des Blancs. Based on 2015 vintage, with 40% of perpetual reserve wine aged in barrels. The pink color comes from a combination of a short maceration (saignée) Pinot Meunier, combined with the traditional method of blending in still Pinot Noir. The still reds are from Pierry and aged in barrel. Aged on the lees for 18-30 months.
