Imposing its wonderful fruit and underlying minerality, the well-rounded and distinctive Champagne Delamotte Brut strikes a clearly distinguished note amidst the monochord of non-vintage bruts. Champagne is better known for its brut NV, each house prides its style through this cuvée, as it represents the house’s character. Champagne Delamotte brut imposes a style with its dominating majority of Grand Cru Chardonnay. Each grape plays its fundamental role, as Chardonnay sets the wine in place, its foundation and roots, a small portion of Pinot Noir helps give the wine more width and fruit and a smaller portion of Pinot Meunier, a less acidic grape, brings its aromatic charm to produce a brut that does not rely on reserve wines for character but finds personality at its roots. Aged on the lees for 30 to 36 months, Delamotte Brut receives a light dosage of sugar, a similar dosage to the rest of the Delamotte range. A perfect aperitif, Delamotte Brut can also be a graceful companion at the table; wonderful aromas of white flesh fruit, pear and ginger overlie the elegant touch of minerality that carries the wine on the palate.
Owned by Laurent-Perrier, this small house makes a great, toasty Chardonnay-dominated nonvintage blend. Rich, full bodied and elegant; an impressive wine. Imported by Wilson Daniels Ltd.
