Delamotte Brut Champagne

SKU #1039012 91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Delamotte NV Brut blends approximately 55% Chardonnay with 35% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier. It is clear, round and spicy on the predominantly fruity and vinous nose with its delicate chalk and hazelnut flavors. On the palate this is a lithe, finessed, fresh and elegant Brut with good structure and a pure, salty-mineral and cleansing finish. The mousse is highly delicate, the whole performance almost filigreed yet well structured. This is a delicious Brut. My sample is based on the 2013 vintage that was disgorged in July 2016 with a dosage of eight grams per liter. Tasted November 2017. (SR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Crisp and minerally, with smoke and chalk accents underscoring the rich notes of lemon curd, glazed apricot and spring blossom, this chiseled Champagne is elegant and well-knit. Drink now through 2022. (AN) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Beautifully balanced, this rich wine has elegance and great poise. Ripe white fruit comes through the mineral texture and hints of toastiness to fill the palate. It is ready to drink. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

This Grand Cru, Chardonnay-dominant blend is true to the Delamotte style with a crisp, linear edge that highlights the complex flavor profile: citrus, dried apricots, hazelnuts and leesy cream with great acidity and a long, chalky finish.

I had the wonderful opportunity to taste the Delamotte Brut in a blind tasting of six wines, and this stood out as one of my favorites. My notes were riddled with adjectives like zesty, fresh and zippy, which can be attributed to the Le Mesnil Chardonnay fruit. There is also an amazing balance of stone fruit, Meyer lemon and a touch of toast on the finish.
