This creamy Champagne is bright and citrusy, offering an expressive and well-meshed mix of ripe blackberry, pastry dough and pickled ginger flavors, followed by a racy finish.

Many generations of the Lallement family have devoted themselves to the growing and making of fine Champagne, specifically on the côteaux of Chaméry, one of the better slopes of Champagne. Ideally situated between Reims and Epernay, the family vineyard consists of 7 hectares on the mountain of Reims. This cuvee is 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier, and 20% Chardonnay, and it is perfect as an aperitif, offering equal amounts of complexity and elegance, with pretty amazing lightness and balance!

Solemme “Terre Solemme” Premier Cru Brut Champagne is a blend of 55% Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir, and 20% Chardonnay that is aged three years on the lees. The name Solemme is a combination of sol for soliel or sun, and emme for femme or woman. This feminine, delicate Champagne has subtle toast and restrained apple fruit. This is a great apéritif Champagne, and is at home by itself as it is with a plate of cheeses.
