Champagne Delamotte

Delamotte is one of the oldest wineries in Champagne. Established in 1760 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. Vineyard location is the key that guides Delamotte’s house style: elegant, focused, expressive. All vineyards are sourced from Grand Cru sites.

“Since its acquisition in 1988 by Laurent-Perrier, Delamotte has been twinned with Salon, one of Champagne’s most prestigious small houses. Delamotte has both gained and lost by the association: gained, in that some of Salon’s reputation has tended to rub off on Delamotte, and lost, because Delamotte is frequently portrayed—though not by the house’s team, of course—as something of a “second wine” to Salon. Though both are Chardonnay specialists emphasizing their home village Mesnil-sur-Oger, in reality, the styles are quite distinct. Delamotte’s wines undergo malolactic fermentation and, in profile, are creamier, more textural and giving, displaying an elegantly autolytic character while eschewing any extremes of Maillard-derived toastiness. Average production amounts to some 750,000 bottles per year, and the estate’s emblematic cuvées are its non-vintage and vintage Blanc de Blancs; the latter especially is a very serious wine, and recent renditions are especially good. In fact, the 2008 may be one of the more underrated wines from this superb vintage on the market, and it’s arguably this cuvée that suffers the most by Delamotte’s position in Salon’s shadow. These wines age well, and old non-vintage Delamotte can be a great bargain in the auction or brokerage market. I’m currently finishing up a case from the early 1980s from my cellar in Burgundy, and every bottle has been terrific.” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate on Champagne Delamotte, August 2019

“The 2014 Blanc de Blancs is seriously impressive. Ample in feel, Delamotte is especially rich in 2014, and yet there is plenty of freshness to balance things out. This is an especially savoury style for Delamotte, and one that works so well. Dried lemon peel, pastry, almond, dried herbs and chamomile open in a beautifully translucent Blanc des Blancs that marries power and finesse. I can’t wait to see how it ages.” 94 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, November 2021

“A blend of the six Grand Cru villages of the Cote de Blancs, with 6.5 grams per liter dosage, the 2014 Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut is fresh and precise, with aromas of vibrant green apple, pleasant reduction with flint, and delicate smoke, citrus blossoms, and wet stone. The transition to the palate is seamless and linear, with crisp and crunchy green fruit, and is electric with lime candy, a refined mousse, and a chalky texture. It warrants more time before opening, but it is delicious and refreshing now. Drink over 2023-2043.”
