Winemaker Notes

Foremost a mineral wine, Delamotte Blanc de Blancs NV has textbook chalkiness; with time in the glass showing its complexity from the lees and white flesh fruit.

On its own, with fresh oysters, elegant saltwater fish or simply with fresh radishes with a touch of fleur de sel, Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is a versatile wine as an aperitif or at the table.

Wine & Spirits
Rich in the middle while completely dry, this has the scent of chalk talc and the same austerity in its lively, crisp acidity. The fine effervescence gives it flash, while the sober, young chardonnay flavors carry the greenness of fresh English peas. If you open it now, you could pick up on that youthfulness next to a creamy spring pea soup with prosciutto.

The Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Champagne reminds me of a fresh ocean breeze. So delightful and full of life, this wine speaks of fresh fruit, bright minerality, and crisp acidity. The wine's decidedly lively finish requires at least a dozen oysters on the half shell. Drinks well now and I always like to enjoy this wine immediately after I acquire it. (Tasted: September 26, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
Based in Mesnil-sur-Oger, this producer specializes in Chardonnay blanc de blancs. This nonvintage is a fine expression of the style, full of minerality softened by rich fruit, much of it from Grand Cru vineyards. A delicate wine, it's subtly fruity, with an enticing floral character.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sourced from the grand crus Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Cramant and aged for four to five years on the lees, the Delamotte NV Blanc de Blanc offers a beautifully intense and chalky bouquet of ripe and fresh white fruits intertwined with brioche and blossom notes. The palate is tight and straight, revealing great finesse and elegance as well as Burgundian fruit flavors, followed by a long, firmly structured finish. Still young and somewhat austere, this energetic Blanc de Blancs will improve over the next two or more years.
Rating: 92+
WS 91
Wine Spectator
This subtle Champagne offers a refined, creamy mousse and flavors of Asian pear, toasted almond and lemon parfait, underscored by chalky minerality. Elegant. 1,400 cases imported.

Like the dosage, the nose is notably restrained as well with its soft aromas of green apple, brioche, yeast and lemon zest. There is good verve to the delicious flavors where the underlying effervescence is really quite fine, all wrapped in a cool, pure, linear and markedly dry finale. This understated effort is an exercise in refinement and will likely best please those who enjoy more delicate examples.

The House of Delamotte is the fifth-oldest Champagne house in the region, founded in 1760. It is located in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Delamotte is small (just 25,000 cases annually) and one of Champagne's best-kept secrets. It is the sister winery of the legendary House of Salon. The two wineries sit side-by-side and are both run by Didier Depond.

"Delamotte has always been somewhat of an insider's house, producing high quality at realistic prices. One of the best buys in exquisitely crafted Champagne."

- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Non-Vintage

View all products

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
