Champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs NV / 750 ml.

Item#: 44897

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2017
Produced exclusively from Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, this is a beautiful, dry wine. It has a chalky texture and ample acidity that frames the tight fruit. The pure line of citrus and crisp green apples goes right to the heart of this balanced, bright wine that will age well. Drink now for the forward fruit, or wait for another two to three years.

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.

Where It's From

Region / Champagne

View more wines from Champagne

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.

Country / France

View more wines from France

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.

A sleek Champagne, with flavors of white cherry and blood orange that are ripe and expressive, accented by honeysuckle, minerally chalk and sliced almond notes. Well-knit and fine in texture. Mouthwatering finish. Disgorged November 2017. Drink now through 2022. 3,000 cases made, 300 cases imported.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2020
Pretty floral and spice notes waft through flavors of green melon and blanched almond in this well-cut Champagne. It’s lively and refreshing, with a creamy viscosity to the mouthfeel and a salty, mineral-driven finish. Disgorged February 2019. Drink now through 2023. 15,000 cases made, 800 cases imported.

Fresh, with focus and intensity, this nonetheless elegant Champagne is finely knit and minerally, offering flavors of crunchy white peach, toast and lemon curd, accented by aromatic hints of cherry blossom, fresh tarragon and spice that linger on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2022.
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2022
This graceful blanc de blancs is light on its feet and bright on the palate, yet the creamy mousse carries a concentrated range of honeyed apricot, Meyer lemon peel, white blossoms and almond pastry. Reveals hints of chalk, smoke and spices on the finish. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)
WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
If chardonnay could be a red wine, it might have the red fruit flavors of this blanc de blancs. Perhaps it’s the floral aspects that turn its chamomile and yellow flower notes toward violets, or the deep earth tones adding color to the flavor. The fruit is persistent, sunny in the middle, then shaded by an almost tannic character to the lees that places the wine with food, particularly roast veal.
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/1/2017
Crisp with a delicious line of acidity and ripe with apple and lemon flavors, this wine balances freshness with hints of maturity from aging in Ruinart’s subterranean cellars. It’s both taut with the tension of cool-climate Chardonnay and showing signs of toastiness.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2011
This is a fabulous version of Ruinart’s NV Brut Blanc de Blancs. The wine seems fresher, more vibrant and less obviously sweet than in the past, all of which makes this a far more interesting wine. The trademark profile of lemon, jasmine and green apples is very much in the forefront while the wine’s textural finesse and length are both first-class. This release of the NV Brut makes a great introduction to the wines of Ruinart, Champagne’s oldest house. This is Lot LAGJSAF. Anticipated maturity: 2011–2014.

Moncuit’s wines are all from single villages and single years—this one from the family’s parcels in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and the 2016 vintage. Fermented spontaneously in stainless steel, it is markedly tense and holds a lot of energy in its structure, even though it underwent malolactic conversion. There’s an elegant earthiness in its spring-meadow scent, like Queen Anne’s lace, and a note of green tea that extends through flavors of lemons and tangy orange. Cool and refreshing.
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2020
From grand cru vineyards in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, this beautiful, ripe wine is on top form. Great minerality mingles with some bottle age, fruit and toast in harmony. This rich bottling is ready to drink. (Roger Voss)

Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle No. 26 | Grande Cuvee Brut Champagne NV / 750 ml.

Grande Cuvée Brut Champagne
NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 37089

WE9797 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 8/1/2018
Laurent-Perrier has always preferred to keep its prestige cuvée as a nonvintage blend. With eight years aging after bottling and plenty of reserve wines in the blend, it is a mature wine that is yeasty and toasty in character. To go with that, there is great fruit from the blend that only comes from grand cru vineyards. It’s ready to drink.
WE9696 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2009
Laurent-Perrier’s prestige cuvée is always non-vintage, a blend of top years. The latest bottling is so elegant, definitely maturing from bottle aging and older vintages in the blend, but still worthy of aging in itself. It is dry, in the L-P style, but has richness, an intense pink grapefruit character, hints of cilantro, the final acidity a great shaft of light.
ST9595 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2002
The new release of this wine is a blend of the ’88, ’90 and ’93 vintages. Very fine, strong mousse. Knockout, musky nose combines orange pith, honeysuckle, spices and chalk. Offers nearly painful intensity of lemon and wet stone flavor without any excess weight. Dense, extremely concentrated material is leavened by brilliant acidity. Wonderfully chewy and sappy in the middle palate and on the extremely long finish. It’s hard top get this out of your mouth! Still, the wine’s finishing austerity suggests that it’s nowhere near its peak today. A great value in tête de cuvée Champagne.
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2013
A subtle version, focused more on delicate acidity and texture than the finely layered flavors of creamed apple, marzipan, pastry dough and black currant, with hints of lemon curd and ground spice. Delivers a lasting, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2013
Bright yellow-gold. A heady, mineral-tinged bouquet evokes dried pear, buttery brioche, lemon curd and anise, plus a smoky topnote. Chewy and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors and a touch of bitter quinine. The smoky note repeats on the finish, which shows impressive clarity and mineral-driven persistence.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2006
This multivintage blend is Laurent-Perrier’s top cuvée, a grand wine that needs decanting to show how it will meld and mellow with age. The scents of orange blossom and toasted lees are tightly wrapped in acidity, a hard edge that softens with air. For the cellar, and eventually for rich shellfish dishes.
