Description

The balance and structure of a vintage Blanc de Blancs champagne by Delamotte

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

Stemming from exceptional terroirs in the Côte des Blancs, this Blanc de Blancs champagne is aged on lees for several years.

The blend

The 2002 Blanc de Blancs by Delamotte is a 100% Chardonnay.

Delamotte's Blanc de Blancs 2002: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The colour is a beautiful, radiant pale yellow with light green highlights. The fine and elegant effervescence highlights the pure and mineral expression of this champagne.

Nose

The nose opens with fragrances of green apple along with floral notes (white flowers and acacia), all slightly enhanced by more toasted scents. When aerated, notes of ripe yellow fruit emerge.

Palate

On the palate, the wine showcases a remarkable balance that combines power and delicacy through a beautiful structure.
