    The most crisp and high acid of the three Solemme bottlings, this wine exhibits every characteristic to make it fresh and invigorating. When you combine 100% Chardonnay with no malolactic fermentation and no dosage, the result could be dangerously harsh and to tart for consumption. That is not the case here. The wine is zippy, but in a refreshing, stimulating way and the winemaker manages to hit just the right balance for the Brut Nature style. A great food Champagne, this is one I'd be ecstatic to bring to any dinner party.

    Fans of dryer than dry champagne, rejoice, for the "Nature de Solemme" is here. This wine undergoes no malolactic fermentation, and as a result is a totally fruit and terroir-driven wine-- tropical aromatics, high acid, zippy, and begging for oysters or seared scallops. Another beautifully elegant wine from this new addition to the K&L lineup.

    Attention all biodynamic wine lovers! Domaine Solemme takes Biodynamics seriously right down to making sure that bottling isn’t happening on a ‘root day’ or vice-versa. The name derives from the first three letters of the French word for sun ‘Soleil’ and the last four letters for woman ‘femme’. “Nature Solemme” is the Brut Nature of the collection where no dosage or sugar is added to the wine before bottling. What you get with this champagne is fruit that had a longer hang-time but didn’t see any malolactic fermentation allowing premium ripeness but palate searing acidity. This is a must try.

    The tart green apple character is the star of the show while the broader notes of toasted brioche, spice, and earth pull for the front line. The wine is beautifully textural with fresh, pretty fruit. That apple character is complimented with subtle notes of ripe tropical fruits and bosque pears.

    Based on the 2013 vintage, based on one of the latest harvests of recent history, this Brut Nature Champagne is bone dry. Chardonnay planted in the early 1960's offers aromas of underripe pineapple and faint daffodil. The light bodied palate is loaded with saline minerality, and finishes long with elegant purity.
