Delamotte 1996 Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay (Champagne)

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.  — R.V.  (12/31/2007)

Delamotte 2004 Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $112
This is the best Delamotte vintage since 1996, a ripe and rich wine that brings out the chalky soil character with a strong mineral content. It has weight along with a relatively high dosage that gives softness. It is balanced, fruity and ready to drink.  — R.V.  (12/1/2014)

Delamotte 1999 Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $79
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.  — R.V.  (7/1/2011)

Delamotte NV Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $50
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.  — R.V.  (12/31/2007)

Delamotte 1992 Blanc de Blancs Brut Sparkling (Champagne)

  1. $63
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.  — W.E.  (12/1/2000)

Delamotte NV Brut Sparkling (Champagne)

  1. $44
A wine with good bottle age along with yeasty acidity and a fine citrus character. It is a light style, with just a hint of toast. The acidity is delicious.  — R.V.  (7/1/2011)

Delamotte NV Brut Rosé Sparkling (Champagne)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $70
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.  — R.V.  (12/1/2009)

Delamotte 1997 Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $74
Floral and fresh, this is very much in the light Delamotte style. White fruits dominate the palate. Balanced and poised overall.  — R.V.  (11/1/2006)
