A zero dosage version of the fabulous Solessence cuvée but from an older vintage. Best enjoyed from the Lehmann Jamesse Prestige, Grand Champagne 45 glass.

A chardonnay dominant champagne that is both full-bodied yet finishes with minerally, crisp acidity.
A mix of 50% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier, 10% Pinot Noir from the 2013 vintage is blended with 50% of wine from a perpetual reserve. The fruit is from seven individual parcels that lie mostly on flinty clay on chalky subsoil : Pierry, Moussy, Épernay, Mardeuil, Dizy, Boursault, Vertus. The wine sees some oak, 20%, with the balance vinified in stainless steel tank and zero dosage is added.
The intense chalky freshness of chardonnay instantly cleanses the palate, followed by the rich, full-bodied red grape combination. The zero dosage gives it a distinct texture.
A perfect pair for freshly shucked oysters topped with salmon pearls.
