Wine Region: Champagne - France
Grape: 100% Chardonnay.
A wonderfully fresh, yeasty and quite citrus-inflected nose speaks of green apple and just a hint of petrol. The pure, intense and utterly delicious flavors carry plenty of aged yeast character that are supported by a firm but distinctly fine effervescence that also shapes the very dry but not austere finish. This is very blanc de blancs in style and offers excellent depth plus it’s extremely stylish. This is not a power Champagne but rather one of finesse and refinement.
'The latest rendition of Delamotte's NV Brut Blanc de Blancs is drinking very well out of the gates, offering up aromas of crisp orchard fruit and citrus zest mingled with hints of fresh bread and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and precise, with bright acids and chalky grip, concluding with a dry finish, this is a classy, seamless wine that will offer a broad drinking window.' Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 93/100
How to Enjoy: Chilled but never cold (around 8°C) and served in an elegant tulip-shaped wine glass. Its fine mineral character develops more intensity when exposed to air revealing a complexity acquired from its extended lees ageing. It goes well with oysters and grilled fish. It is equally at home with crunchy radishes, especially dipped in a touch of fleur de sel. But, for all that, the Blanc de Blancs can still be enjoyed in its own as an aperitif.
About the winery: The unofficial second label of the super-prestige marquee, Salon, in that Delamotte has first rights to any grapes from Salon’s prized 50 year old vineyards in the premier Chardonnay village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger that it’s neighbor doesn’t need for it’s own Champagne.
Maison Delamotte has been a benchmark in Champagne since 1760. Produced with great care and passion in a place where nature is expressed most openly. Maison Delamotte expresses to perfection the characteristics of the Cote des Blancs. Light, gossamer-textured, impertinent, more complex with ageing, discrete yet present, heady but not heavy, Champagne at any time, for any occasion.
