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.

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

There are very few wine regions in the world quite as famous as Champagne, and the sparkling white wines which are produced there are drank and enjoyed all over the globe as a result of their excellent quality, distinctive features and their association with grandeur and celebration. Wineries have been operating in the cool, damp north-easterly region of Champagne for hundreds of years, and over time have mastered the art of making the most of the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Petit Meunier grape varietals which grow there across the rolling hillsides and kept in the region's unique 'Champagne caves'. Most commonly, these three varietals are blended together to produce the sparkling white wine, but the popularity of single variety Champagne wines are on the increase.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
