Pale yellow. Fresh citrus fruits, pear skin, quinine and chalk on the incisive nose. Dry, focused and pure, offering intense lemon curd and honeysuckle flavors underscored by crackling minerality. Shows impressive clarity and lift on the finish, which emphatically repeats the mineral and floral notes. There's plenty of power here but the overall impression is one of elegance.

The NV Blanc de Blancs Brut is a 100% stainless steel-fermented Chardonnay sourced in the grand cru villages of Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Cramant that spends up to five years on the lees in bottle. This bottling is based on the 2012 vintage (plus 10% reserve wines) and was disgorged after almost four years in January 2017 (dosage: 7 grams per liter). It shows deep, clear, fresh and aromatic fruit on the nose, intertwined with chalky flavors typical for this part of the Côte des Blancs. On the palate, this is a round, very elegant, beautifully pure and mineral yet well-concentrated Blanc de Blancs with a stimulatingly fruity and mouth-filling if not succulent finish structured by very fine chalky tannins. This lush and perfectly balanced Brut shows a remarkably fine mousse and drinks perfectly today, but it can be cellared for up to 6 years to gain more complexity. Tasted November 2017.

As mineral and lime-infused as a Chablis, this vinous Champagne is creamy, rich and toasty, with plenty of acidity to keep it focused. There’s an earthiness to the fruit, edging on root vegetables. Serve it with toasted almonds.
Rated 90 by Wine Spectator
A hint of wood smoke wafts through the notes of green pear, licorice and dried apricot in this fresh, balanced version. Shows fine texture, with a subtle finish. Drink now.

Additional Information on Delamotte Brut Blanc De Blancs

Winery Delamotte

Region: Champagne

The beautiful north-easterly region of Champagne in France is famous around the world for the production of the exquisite sparkling white wines which characterize the region. All over the globe, bottles of wine from Champagne are celebrated and enjoyed, and their fame has come about through generations of expertise and experimentation, and a dedication to quality which raises the bar for producers of sparkling wines everywhere. The vast majority of grapes grown in this special region are of the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Petit Meunier varietals, the principle grapes used for the production of Champagne sparkling white wines. The region itself is far cooler than many other important French wine regions, but this hasn't stopped the dozens of wineries in Champagne from making their distinctive and much-loved produce.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
