Delamotte is a Champagne house more than 250 years old (it is the sixth oldest Champagne house) founded in Reims in 1760 by François Delamotte, a vineyard owner. He and other Champagne producers were the creators of a tradition based on quality. Their modus operandi, far from being viewed as quaint, earned them a place in the Encyclopedia of Physiocrates. Their practices have been used as a model and a paradigm by other businesses due to their progressive outlook and insistence on quality. They were truly modern-minded people. Their masterpiece – the wines – continue to be recreated anew each year and the house of Delamotte is a prime example of the traditions of quality they embody. Champagne Delamotte brut imposes a style with its dominating majority of Grand Cru Chardonnay. Each grape plays its fundamental role, as Chardonnay sets the wine in place, its foundation and roots, a small portion of Pinot Noir helps give the wine more width and fruit and a smaller portion of Pinot Meunier, a less acidic grape, brings its aromatic charm to produce a brut that does not rely on reserve wines for character but finds personality at its roots. Aged on the lees for 30 to 36 months, Delamotte Brut receives a light dosage of sugar, a similar dosage to the rest of the Delamotte range. A perfect aperitif, Delamotte Brut can also be a graceful companion at the table; wonderful aromas of white flesh fruit, pear and ginger overlie the elegant touch of minerality that carries the wine on the palate.
