(Non Millesime) - 100% Chardonnay. Its pale gold color, glinting with emerald, illuminates the delicate necklace of bubbles rising to the disc's surface in the glass. On the nose, the wine's noble origins are unmistakable in the energy of its bouquet: pure, direct, and deep, a strong personality. Its lively attack, palate freshness, and mouth-watering minerality are a delight. But it doesn't end there. The gourmet will appreciate the supple fruit and notes of brioche that explode in a dreamy finish.
Delamotte was founded in Reims in 1760 by vineyard owner François Delamotte, a vineyard owner. At more than 250 years old, it is the fifth oldest house in Champagne. After the House of Delamotte moved to a beautiful mansion at the end of the 18th century and in 1828, his brother, Nicolas Louis Delamotte, also known as the Chevalier Delamotte Barrachin, assumed management in 1828. In his tenure with the Chamber of Commerce, Nicolas was well known for hosting spectacular events, namely the coronation of France’s last king, Charles X. The House was sold to the Lanson family in the 1830s, who later started producing a Lanson label, and later was acquired by Marie-Louise de Nonancourt, née Lanson, in the period between the two World Wars. In 1927, Marie-Louise made the decision to transfer the activities of the house of Delamotte to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. In 1988, the House of Delamotte joined forces with the still enigmatic Champagne Salon under the umbrella of the parent company, Laurent-Perrier, led by Charles’ brother, Bernard. Today, the House of Delamotte and its sister company Champagne Salon are under the direction of Didier Depond.
From Cramant to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger through Avize and Oger: all are found in the Côte
des Blancs. Its location is one of Delamotte’s richest assets. The chalky soil, the flora, and
sloping vineyards give the grapes their exceptional character, delivering delicate, consistent Champagnes. Championing this exceptional terroir, drawing the best from it while maintaining absolute respect for the vines and the environment – that’s what Delamotte is all about.
