The Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is only created out of Chardonnay that comes from chalky soils, representative of the Champagne Region. This cuvée was blended with a minimum of 10% aged wines. The ageing on lees lasts, in this situation, from 4 to 5 years to exalt the finesse and elegance of this cuvée. The Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is very mineral- thanks to is pure chalk terroir- and unveils a nice evolution after airing. This evolution partially comes from the ageing on lees. One can also detect a nice and delicate aromatic bouquet with fruity and brioche notes. It is quaffable and fresh with a good minerality.
Delamotte : Blanc de Blancs
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Disgorged in June 2018, the latest rendition of Delamotte's NV Blanc de Blancs is showing just as well as its immediate predecessor, offering up a classy bouquet of crisp green apple, citrus oil, brioche, toasted nuts and dried white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant, with a crisp but charming core of fruit, lively acids and a precise, saline finish.
