Delamotte : Blanc de Blancs 1999

A mineral and aromatic vintage Blanc de Blancs champagne

The estate

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 vineyard

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 blend

The 1999 Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is a 100% Chardonnay.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 1999 Brut Blanc de Blancs is a beautifully nuanced wine. Here the Chardonnay speaks with notable eloquence, often drawing parallels with the wines of Burgundy. The mousse is exceptionally finessed and the wine offers great depth as well as richness. The essence of crushed rocks, smoke and minerals are layered beautifully in the polished finish. This Lot # 6905306, disgorged February, 2006. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. 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.
