Delamotte is one of the oldest wineries in Champagne. Established in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, it is the “little sister” property to the legendary Champagne Salon. They share viticultural, enological, and managerial teams as well as terroir.

 

Delamotte Brut is a blend of approximately 55% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir from south-facing slopes on the Montagne de Reims, and 10% Pinot Meunier from the Valle de la Marne. Chardonnay sets the framework, Pinot Noir brings fruitiness and richness, and Pinot Meunier introduces aromatic charm. Following 30 to 36 months maturation sur lie after secondary fermentation, the wine received a light dosage. They combine in a wine of subtle power, appealing freshness, soft curves, and a precise, fresh fruit finish. This is a dry and extremely attractive Traditional Method sparkling wine, balanced and elegant. No need to age, this food-friendly Champagne can be popped anytime!

 

“This wine is currently beating the pants off of most non-vintage Brut Champagnes from the region’s major houses, so keep this up on your radar.  Straddling the line between light- and medium-bodied, it shows more aroma and flavor than one would expect from its “size,” and though it is quite expressive and fully satisfying, there’s still a classy sense of restraint that keeps this fresh and interesting for many sips on end.  A Platinum Award winner at the 2019 San Diego International Wine and Spirits Challenge.”

“The Delamotte Brut Champagne is fantastic effort. Immediately you are greeted with inviting aromas of orchard fruits, toasted brioche, salted pear and macadamia nut. The wine shows off its classy mousse with a kiss of sweetness on the mid-palate. Sourdough bread and baked apple flavours all mingle with the wonderful sense of balance and tension that runs through the core of the wine. Enjoy this beautiful wine over now or with some short term cellaring. 2019-2026”

“(aged on the lees for 30-36 months with a high proportion of Grand Cru chardonnay). An overtly yeasty nose reflects attractive notes of brioche and freshly baked bread along with whiffs of apple, citrus and pear. The full-flavoured, indeed bold palate impression is delicious and generous if not especially refined (though certainly not rustic), while offering solid depth and persistence. This is one of those nicely complex and reasonably dry examples that is almost gulpable in the best sense of the term. Entirely satisfying if not sophisticated. Drink now.”
