Delamotte : Blanc de Blancs 2004

The balance and elegance of a 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

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

The blend

The 2004 Blanc de Blancs by Delamotte is a 100% Chardonnay.

Delamotte's Blanc de Blancs 2004: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

Pale and golden with silver highlights, the colour reveals fine and regular bubbles with a smooth foam.

Nose

Clean and fresh, the nose is full of citrus fruit, white fruit, fresh almond and floral aromas.

Palate

Ample and full, the palate reveals the elegance and purity of the Chardonnay variety along with a chalky minerality, the whole leads to a beautiful and slightly saline length. The result is a fine balance between sharpness, minerality, precision, creaminess, tenderness and spice.
