“Praline and riper white peach and citrus aromas here plus a little spice, grilled hazelnuts and grapefruit. The palate’s fleshy and expressive, showing really smooth lemons, pink-grapefruit and citrus flavours all featuring in what’s an open-knit, generous textural palate. Drink now.”

“Delamotte’s 2007 Blanc de Blancs is deep, fleshy and seductive, with lovely textural depth and nuance throughout. The 2007 is a relatively soft, open-knit Delamotte that will drink well upon release. I especially admire the wine’s sense of balance and overall proportion, two of the many qualities that give the 2007 its considerable appeal.”

“Sourced from Grands Crus, the 2007 Blanc de Blancs offers a clear and chalky flavoured bouquet of lemons and limes on chalk. Full-bodied, very fresh and elegant on the palate, this is a pure and mineral, tension-filled Champagne. It has purity, freshness and a lot of salt in the finish. This shows stunning freshness and mineral expression for a 2007. What a stunning 2007!”

“A firm Champagne, softened by the creamy mousse that carries floral and fresh herb notes lacing tightly knit flavours of pippin apple, kumquat and smoke-tinged minerality. Drink now through 2020.”
