When our Champagne buyer thinks a wine is good enough to bring in hundreds of cases after one sip, I sit up and take notice. It can be scary taking a chance on a new producer, but when you know the wines are that good, it's worth the risk. The Solemme wines fit this description. The care the winemaker puts in is evident through his use of biodynamics, which clearly indicated he cares about his vine quality and health. This particular bottling may have been my favorite of the three, not least of which because it possesses a beautiful rose gold color. With floral notes and bright acidity to bring a fresh, crisp palate, it's made all the more special by being a rare 100% Pinot Meunier bottling.
