R. Pouillon & Fils "Solera" Extra-Brut Premier Cru Champagne NV
Varietal: Champagne Blend
Region: Champagne
Country/State: France
Color: White
94+ Our Score (5/2021) Culled from a unique blend that dates back to 1997, the "Solera" combines 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir all grown from their biodynamically farmed vines within Mareuil-sur-Ay. Every year, 30% of the large "Solera" is racked off for secondary fermentation and replaced with 30% new wine. The result of this painstaking process is a wine that manages a continuous representation of terroir. This batch, disgorged in the autumn of 2020, is gorgeous. We drank our sample bottle over several days to experience the full depth of what this bubbly offers. With air, the serious complexity and length of Solera's flavor are gloriously revealed, including notes of nectarine, lemon butter, apple blossom and honeysuckle. With each ever-quicker sip, you'll delight in the pure mineral-themed, citrus-tinged, white rock tones only seen in great Champagnes. A limited-quantity sparkler that will drink gorgeously now and over the next 5-10 years!

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
