Champagne Delamotte Brut NV

Champagne, FranceChampagne Delamotte was one of only five Champagne houses in the mid 1700's, and remains located in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in Le Mesnil- sur-Oger. Delamotte is the sister house and contiguous to the regaled Champagne Salon, with which it shares the same viticultural, winemaking and management crew. Delamotte Brut is a blend of approximately 55 percent chardonnay, 35 percent pinot noir from south-facing slopes on the Montagne de Reims, and 10 percent meunier from the Valle de la Marne. The whole spends 36 months on the lees, and is dosed with 7 g/l. Tight, finessed lemon, chalk, on a lemon brioche palate, one kissed lightly with the freshest, salted hazelnuts and nervy with energetic acidity that nips at the sides and hums on the lingering finish. Quite precise and taut, without feeling any constraints, this is a lovely, brisk, detailed NV.Tasted: 20 May 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 65.00 private wine stores Producer: Champagne DelamotteDistributors: Dream Wines
