Delamotte is best known as the sister estate of its famous neighbor Salon, one of the most storied names in Champagne. Increasingly, though, the Delamotte wines are noteworthy for their own merits. In a bottle of this Brut, an orchestra of three grape varieties plays a particularly balanced score.
Made from Grand Cru Chardonnay, Delamotte Blanc de Blancs exhibits absolute purity, with the vinification process taking place in stainless steel tanks. Blanc de Blancs is a mineral champagne, with a chalky sensation achieved by a modest addition of reserve wine, 10% maximum.
This particular note is the very essence of the vineyard and its Chardonnays, which grow in a pure chalk soil. The wines may be a little austere when young, which is why maturation on the lees, far longer than the statutory fifteen months, extends to four or five years before disgorgement. Aging after disgorgement continues to perfect the finesse and elegance of this cuvée.
