Delamotte is one of the oldest Champagne houses, founded in 1760 by François Delamotte. The maison is located in the heart of the Cotes des Blancs in Mesnil-sur-Oger and is one of the most specialized in the production of champagne of the highest expression of chardonnay. Its neighbor and current subsidiary is Salon, with which it shares the goal of producing great blanc de blancs.
It is produced according to the so-called champenoise method or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles when uncorked).
Pale straw yellow colour, elegant perlage. On the nose notes of white flowers and white fruit, with notes of pastry. Elegant and powerful on the palate.
