|| |$205 | 2-BOTTLE CASE: 2012 Delamotte Brut Blanc de Blancs

Description

When François Delamotte – a vineyard owner in Reims – founded the House in 1760, could he ever have imagined that his champagne would still be gracing our tables three centuries later? Hidden away in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Delamotte continues the tradition started by its founder. Champagnes produced with bold simplicity, owing their subtlety to the ideal terroir of the Côte des Blancs, drawing forth a rich balance from the powerful, airy Chardonnays.

“A worthy successor to the super 2008, Delamotte’s 2012 Blanc de Blancs is performing very well—despite the fact that it was disgorged as recently as June 2019. Opening in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, dried white flowers, smoke and wheat toast, it’s medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a bright girdle of acidity, well-integrated dosage and a fine mousse, the muscularity of the vintage rendered with uncommon finesse. While this is quite expressive for such a recently disgorged vintage Delamotte, the rewards of even only a few years’ patience will be considerable.”
