Winemaker Notes

The balance between the dominant Pinot Noir and the smaller percentage of Chardonnay in the Delamotte Rosé gives this wine its beautiful pale rose color. The wine has tiny bubbles with strong red fruit aromas and flavors. It is vivacious, supple and round with a hint of acidity.

It makes a wonderful aperitif, as well as a good companion to poultry dishes or red fruit desserts.

Salmon color; juicy and crisp with elegant structure and refined style; pure, focused, smooth and long.
WS 92
Wine Spectator

Very fragrant, boasting rose, violet, red berry and peach aromas and flavors. Opulent, even creamy, with underlying acidity that freshens the finish and a subtle aftertaste of fruit and spice.

Light garnet color. An exceptionally fresh and very cool nose displays only wisps of yeast character on the bright nose of cherry, raspberry and strawberry aromas yet there is better depth than the description would suggest. The complexity continues onto the utterly delicious medium weight flavors where the supporting mousse is relatively fine, all wrapped in a balanced, clean, citrusy and lingering finish that is dry but not the least bit austere. This is really very good and while I wouldn't call the SRP a bargain, if you like rosé Champagne this delivers fair value. Note that while this could be aged, for my taste it's drinking perfectly now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made by the traditional saignée method and a cofermented blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, the Delamotte NV Brut Rosé displays a beautifully intense dark salmon color followed by a deep and vinous bouquet with delicate red fruit aromas, a subtle touch of brioche, great elegance and subtle freshness. Full-bodied and round yet dry and complex on the palate, this is a dense and mouth-filling but very elegant and refined rosé composed of fruit from great terroirs such as Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tours-sur-Marne (for Pinot) and Mesnil-sur-Oger (for Chardonnay). The finish is pure and fresh, revealing delicate red fruit combined with a clear and balancing structure. Aged for three or four years on the lees, this is an excellent rosé.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Disgorged in June 2018, the latest release of Delamotte's NV Brut Rosé is showing very well, offering up notes of orange rind, rhubarb, white cherries, pastry cream and brioche. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and beautifully balanced, with an elegant, understated profile, superb focus and a long, delicately chalky finish. Rating: 91+

Wine & Spirits

This is a saignée rosé built on pinot noir (80 percent) from grand cru villages of the Montagne de Reims— Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tours-sur-Marne— with chardonnay from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The skin contact creates a pink-gold color and a raspberry rasp of flavor, with hints of herbs and tar. With air, the floral aspects of the wine emerge as the darker tones dissipate, making this a tense, herbal wine for roast salmon.

Delamotte, France
Delamotte Didier Depond, President Winery Image

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

France

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, . 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.’

What are the different types of Champagne and sparkling wine?

Beloved for its lively bubbles, sparkling wine is the ultimate beverage for any festivity, whether it's a major celebration or a mere merrymaking of nothing much! Sparkling wine is made throughout the winemaking world, but only can be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France and is made using what is referred to as the "traditional method." Other regions have their own specialties—Crémant in other parts of France, Cava in Spain and Prosecco in Italy, to name a few. New World regions like California, Australia and New Zealand enjoy the freedom to make many styles, with production methods and traditions defined locally. In a dry style, Champagne and sparkling wine goes with just about any type of food. Sweet styles are not uncommon and among both dry and sweet, you'll find white, rosé—or even red!—examples.

How is Champagne and sparkling wine made?

Champagne, Crémant, Cava and many other sparkling wines of the world are made using the traditional method, in which the second fermentation (the one that makes the bubbles) takes place inside the bottle. With this method, spent yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful, toasted bread or brioche qualities and in many cases, the capacity to age. For Prosecco, the carbonation process usually occurs in a stainless steel tank (before bottling) to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas imminent in this style.

What gives Champagne and sparkling wine its bubbles?

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, which traps carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel.

How do you serve Champagne and sparkling wine?

Ideally for storing Champagne and sparkling wine in any long-term sense, it should be at cellar temperature, about 55F. For serving, cool Champagne and sparkling wine down to about 40F to 50F. (Most refrigerators are colder than this.) As for drinking Champagne and sparkling wine, the best glasses have a stem and flute or tulip shape to allow the bead (bubbles) to show.

How long does Champagne and sparkling wine last?

Most sparkling wines like Prosecco, Cava or others around the “$20 and under” price point are intended for early consumption. Wines made using the traditional method with extended cellar time before release can typically improve with age. If you are unsure, definitely consult a wine professional for guidance.
