Tasting notes for theChampagne Brut from Maison Delamotte

  • EYE: it presents itself with a radiant golden hue, subtly accented by greenish reflections. The fine, persistent bubbles form a delicate ring of mousse on the surface, indicating a lively effervescence. When held to the light, the wine's transparency and brilliance are remarkable, showcasing its purity and freshness. Tilting the glass reveals a color gradient towards paler shades, a sign of meticulous winemaking. 
  • NOSE: On the nose, the champagne initially offers delicate aromas of white flowers and white-fleshed fruits, such as pear and apple. As it aerates, more complex notes of fresh brioche and roasted almonds emerge, indicating the time spent on lees. Citrus scents, particularly lemon and grapefruit, bring a touch of vivacity and freshness. There are also mineral nuances that add depth to the aromatic bouquet. The overall impression is harmonious, inviting the discovery of a beautifully layered olfactory palette.
  • MOUTH: On the palate, this champagne is characterized by a lively and fresh attack, which quickly gives way to a creamy and well-balanced texture. The flavors of white fruits are supported by well-measured acidity, offering a sensation of lightness and finesse. The notes of brioche and hazelnut, perceived on the nose, are confirmed on the palate, adding a gourmet dimension to the tasting. The minerality, present in the background, imparts remarkable structure and length. The finish is long, elegant, and slightly saline, inviting one to prolong the tasting experience.

In short: Champagne Brut Delamotte stands out with its golden hue and fine, persistent bubbles, offering a brilliant visual appeal. On the nose, it reveals floral, fruity, and brioche notes with a hint of minerality. On the palate, the balance between freshness, creaminess, and aromatic complexity is outstanding, providing a refined and persistent tasting experience. This champagne can be cellared for 3 to 5 years, allowing it to develop even more complexity. It pairs excellently with seafood, such as oysters or salmon tartare, a creamy mushroom risotto, roasted poultry, aged cheeses, or fruit-based desserts like a pear tart.

Champagne from Mesnil-sur-Oger of the Côte des Blancs

The Delamotte estate, founded in 1760 by François Delamotte, is one of the oldest and most prestigious Champagne domains. François Delamotte, a major vineyard owner in Cumières, established this wine house during a period of intellectual and cultural effervescence. The estate is based on family expertise, involving his sons Alexandre and Nicolas-Louis.

In 1927, Marie-Louise de Nonancourt relocated the activities to Mesnil-sur-Oger, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, famous for its chalky soils and a climate favorable to chardonnay cultivation. This unique white grape of the region gives Delamotte champagnes exceptional minerality and finesse. In 1988, the Delamotte estate was integrated into Laurent-Perrier group, along with its neighbor, the Salon estate. Since then, the two estates have been considered "sister houses." Since 1997, under the direction of Didier Depond, the estate continues to shine in over fifty countries.

The house's main cuvées are Brut, Blanc de Blancs, Brut Rosé, and Blanc de Blancs Millésimé, all recognized for their elegance and aromatic complexity.

For over 250 years, Delamotte has embodied Champagne excellence, offering wines appreciated by discerning enthusiasts worldwide. Each cuvée reflects the harmonious marriage between tradition and innovation, guaranteeing champagnes of remarkable quality and great aging potential. The Delamotte estate, with its historical roots and commitment to the art of champagne, remains an essential reference in the wine world.
