Delamotte Brut is a blend of a 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!
“Based on the 2015 vintage and disgorged in 2020, the latest release of Delamotte’s emblematic NV Brut Blanc de Blancs wafts from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, mandarin orange, green apple, fresh bread and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and vibrant, it’s bright and precise, exemplifying the house style.”
