Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2012 Champagne - 750 ml
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“A worthy successor to the super 2008, Delamotte's 2012 Blanc de Blancs is performing very well—despite the fact that it was disgorged as recently as June 2019. Opening in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, dried white flowers, smoke and wheat toast, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a bright girdle of acidity, well-integrated dosage and a fine mousse, the muscularity of the vintage rendered with uncommon finesse. While this is quite expressive for such a recently disgorged vintage Delamotte, the rewards of even only a few years' patience will be considerable.” William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Delamotte is one of Champagne’s oldest houses. François Delamotte – a vineyard owner in Reims – founded the House in 1760. Its location is one of Delamotte’s richest assets. Hidden away in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, the flora and the sloping vineyards give the grapes their exceptional character, delivering delicate, consistent champagnes. The soil is chalky. Championing this exceptional terroir, drawing the best from it while maintaining absolute respect for the vines and the environment - that's what Delamotte is all about.
