Wine Advocate Review
he latest rendition of Delamotte's NV Brut Blanc de Blancs is drinking very well out of the gates, offering up aromas of crisp orchard fruit and citrus zest mingled with hints of fresh bread and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and precise, with bright acids and chalky grip, concluding with a dry finish, this is a classy, seamless wine that will offer a broad drinking window. Drink now-2036.
Made from Grand Cru Chardonnay, Delamotte Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Champagne 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 our vineyard and its Chardonnays, which grow in a pure chalk soil. Yes, 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. Ageing after disgorgement continues to perfect the finesse and elegance of this cuvee.
