Half bottle 37.5cl

Description

The Brut from Delamotte is an atypical champagne which breaks the mould of non-vintage brut champagne, which is too often stereotyped.

The Delamotte Brut offers a measured balance between intense fruit and lively minerality.

The refreshing lightness is due to the majority of Chardonnay in the blend, with structure and fruit brought by the Pinot Noir and density by the Pinot Meunier.

36 months cellar ageing adds supplementary smoothness and maturity.

The nose offers lovely bready and fruity aromas, with white fleshed fruits, pear and a touch of ginger in the mouth.

It is a champagne which is absolutely perfect for aperitif.

        Description

        The Blanc de Blancs from Delamotte is a masterful interpretation of the most noble terroirs of the Côte des Blancs, made from Chardonnay grown on the Grand Cru terroirs of Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize and Cramant.

        The minerality in this Blanc de Blancs is derived from the chalky soils of the vineyards.

        The nose is graceful, floral, mineral.

        The palate opens with elegance and verve, beautifully ethereal, reflecting the same floral notes as found on the nose but with a supplementary touch of salinity.

        The aromas of this Blanc de Blancs have been polished and rounded by 4 to 5 years in the Delamotte cellars.

        Excellent for a summer aperitif or served with a plate of oysters or grilled fish.
