From the Producer
A superlative expression of Grand Cru Chardonnay, Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is made from our vineyards and partner vineyards all situated in the Grands Crus of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Cramant. Our winemaking is straightforward, there are no secrets, and all the wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks. A very restrained dosage is used, so as not to alter the purity of the fruit, producing an untouched and mineral style of wine. Only 10% reserve wines are used, enhancing the essential characteristics of the vineyards, an endless “crayeux” expression of Champagne. Grown on chalk soil our Chardonnay is quite austere at birth; hence the wine is laid to rest and develop on its lees” for 4 to 5 years before disgorgement (while the legal minimum is 15 months). The disgorged wine will improve for 2 to 6 years.
Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.
The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.
Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
