2007 Champagne Blanc de Blancs, Chardonnay.
Champagne house Delamotte was created more than 250 years ago and is established in a beautiful dwelling, in the heart of the Mesnil-sur-Oger terroir. The Blanc de Blancs cuvee comes from that terroir, where it gets its most beautiful expressions. This 2007 is 100% Chardonnay.
The Champagne House Delamotte 2007 Blanc de Blancs displays a gold colour with green highlights. Its brightness is enhanced by abundant and regular fine bubbles that lead to a frank and pure nose. It gives off white flower, orange blossom and jasmine fragrances, followed by a hint of mint and William pear. On the palate, the 2007 Blanc de Blancs is developed and amplified in its complexity, its elegance and its excellence. This Champagne reveals strength and freshness; but also delicate aromas of honey with a citrus fruit accent. This Champagne is balanced and seductive.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Sourced from grands crus, the 2007 Blanc de Blancs offers a clear and chalky flavored bouquet of lemons and limes on chalk. Full-bodied, very fresh and elegant on the palate, this is a pure and mineral, tension-filled Champagne. It has purity, freshness and a lot of salt in the finish. This shows stunning freshness and mineral expression for a 2007. What a stunning 2007!
