NV Champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This wine could be seen as the 'kid sister' to the epic Salon 'S' Cuvee. It's owned by the same people as Salon, and apparently some of the leftover fruit finds its way into this wine, but it's a long way from sloppy seconds. Made from 100% chardonnay from Grand Cru vineyards, it shows lots of citrus and flowers with a kiss of spice and honey on the nose. The palate is tight, dry and explicit with stone fruits and lemon cheesecake - complete with crushed biscuit base - and a talcy, crisp finish.

Winemaker's Notes

100% Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs, rich, with a suprising delicatesse, round yet mineral. Beyond its golden robe, floral fragrances (especially of rose), angelica, citrus, with a hint of ginger and, in the mouth, hints of biscuit and breadcrust on the finish.

A true pleasure with grilled fish, langoustine and shrimp, oysters, poultry and all cream dishes.

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (1999 Vintage) says
With nicely placed complexity and toasty lemon citrus aromas, this really sings. Some peach and brioche too, and grapefruit - all the hallmarks of great chardonnay are on show. Super-fine texture, really impressive vanilla-spiced citrus flavours, very fresh, composed and immaculately balanced.

Made under the same management as the scintillating, perfect Salon, this is a complex and balanced Blanc de Blancs, superbly structured and phrased. It's perfectly suited to pre-anything drinks and has the balance and structure to take through to dinner.

Tyson Stelzer says
Delamotte is baby Salon, and it receives all the leftovers. 100% Grand Cru vineyards; a refreshingly pale wine of definition and line, cut with white fruits, citrus and lingering minerality.
