Founded in 1760, the Delamotte Champagne House is one of the five oldest houses in the Champagne region. Located in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, in Mesnil-sur-Oger, the Delamotte House shares the same goal-oriented approach as the mythical neighbouring house, Salon. Under the direction of Didier Depond, the Houses benefit from the same sales team, a single vineyard division and a shared Cellar Master who all watch over the destiny of the two sister houses. Delamotte is thus one of the few wine merchants to work with passion and respect for the environment, in order to express the unique terroir of Champagne.
The elegant Delamotte style stems from the unique location of its vineyards. All the grapes come from the Grands Crus in the Côte des Blancs, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize and Cramant. Resting on the sides of the hill, the vines are planted on chalky soils, giving this champagne an exceptional character and a delicate expression.
Vinification and ageing
Made from exceptional terroirs in the Côte des Blancs, this Blanc de Blancs champagne is aged on lees for several years.
The 1999 Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is a 100% Chardonnay.
The colour is a delicate light yellow.
The nose gives off fresh, floral and fruity fragrances. Notes of white flowers, peach and apricot stand out.
On the palate, the wine expresses the extent of its minerality through a rich and opulent texture.
