Delamotte Blanc de Blancs’ appearance reveals its inner beauty: Soft gold with green reflections whose glow is accentuated by small and numerous bubbles, forerunners to frank and pure aromas of white flowers, orange blossom, and jasmine. Williams pear and a touch of spearmint complete the overall intense expression of the best Côte des Blanc Chardonnays.
Made from Grand Cru Chardonnay, Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Champagne exhibits absolute purity, with the vinification process taking place in stainless steel tanks. Blanc de Blancs is a mineral champagne, with a chalky sensation achieved by a modest addition of reserve wine (10% maximum). This particular note is the very essence of our vineyard and its Chardonnays, which grow in pure chalk soil. Yes, the wines may be a little austere when young, which is why maturation on the lees – far longer than the statutory fifteen months – extends to four or five years before disgorgement. Aging after disgorgement continues to perfect the finesse and elegance of this cuvée.
