Disgorged in 2006, this wine (and it is a wine, almost more than a Champagne) is young, dry and touched with green plums, secondary flavors of toast and yeast, as well as an white flower perfume.
With its highly mineral aroma, this is almost like smelling chalk. It’s an austere wine, with high acidity, crystal clear on the palate, full of grapefruit flavors and flint texture. Age this wine at least 4 years.
Made from 100% grand cru vineyards, this is a textured wine that shows some cookie pastry bottle maturity. Orange zest acidity is followed by riper red fruit flavors. It is an attractive wine, aimed at food with a distinct final soft richness.
From a producer that is closely linked to Salon Champagne, it’s no coincidence that this Blanc de Blancs is the best of the Delamotte range. It is crisp, lemony, with a touch of toast and a mature finish.
A deep and full nose with yeasty, leesy qualities opens this solid and serious offering. Decidedly not fruit-driven, it is still very satisfying, with toast and mild grapefruit flavors, and a full but fairly soft feel. Easy and pleasing, it intriguingly offers more depth than first meets the mouth.
