DELAMOTTE BRUT CHAMPAGNE LE MESNIL SUR OGER 750ML
Pale gold in color, it has great purity on the nose, laced with citrus, white blossom, lemon zest and earthy spice. Its creamy freshness is further emphasized by the textural delicacy of its bubbles. Many occasions lend themselves to opening a bottle of Delamotte brut, a generous champagne, clean and elegant.
“This mineral-driven version offers a smoky overtone to the flavors of poached pear and Meyer lemon zest, with hints of toasted brioche and almond. Subtle, offering a finely detailed bead and a spiced finish.” Wine Spectator 91 Points
“Owned by Laurent-Perrier, this small house makes a great, toasty Chardonnay-dominated nonvintage blend. Rich, full bodied and elegant; an impressive wine.” Wine Enthusiast 93 Points
“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.” Robert Parker 91 Points
