Winemaker's Notes

The 1999 Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is a pale yellow color with green reflects. The nose is herbal with hints of jasmine, white peach, mint, pear. On the palate, the wine is very fresh, well-balanced, straight and pure. It is the perfect companion to shellfish, crayfish carpaccio, sushi and all white fish.

90 Points

"This is almost silky in texture, with honey, almond and citrus peel flavors and a crisp, mineral finish. Has great balance and freshness, making it ideal as an aperitif."
Wine Spectator

93 Points

"Fresh aromas of lemon peel, chalk and vanilla. "A crisp, well-structured wine with plenty of peach, apricot and mineral flavors. The finish is youthful and tart reflecting the staying power of blanc de blancs."
The Wine News

Critical Acclaim

"…an elegant and relatively high-toned nose that offers a moderate level of yeastiness with a distinct citrus component to the very pretty floral notes that blend into crisp, intense and effervescent middle weight flavors of fine depth and complexity that culminate in a beautifully persistent finish that is stylish and understated. Lovely stuff that could be enjoyed now or held for a few more years."

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better?
