    Winemaker's Notes:

    Foremost a mineral wine, Delamotte Blanc de Blancs NV has textbook chalkiness; with time in the glass showing its complexity from the lees and white flesh fruit.

    On its own, with fresh oysters, elegant saltwater fish or simply with fresh radishes with a touch of fleur de sel, Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is a versatile wine as an aperitif or at the table.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rich in the middle while completely dry, this has the scent of chalk talc and the same austerity in its lively, crisp acidity. The fine effervescence gives it flash, while the sober, young chardonnay flavors carry the greenness of fresh English peas. If you open it now, you could pick up on that youthfulness next to a creamy spring pea soup with prosciutto.

    A subtle version, more impressive today for showing fine balance and texture, as well as chalk-tinged, minerally drive to the hints of creamed apple, lemon parfait, orchard blossom and slivered almond. Very pretty.

    With its highly mineral aroma, this is almost like smelling chalk. It’s an austere wine, with high acidity, crystal clear on the palate, full of grapefruit flavors and flint texture. Age this wine at least 4 years.

    Green-tinged straw. Citrus fruits and white flowers on the assertively perfumed nose and in the mouth, a hint of iodine building with air. Fleshy and broad but dry, with a chalky quality that carries through the long, sappy finish. A smooth marriage of richness and vivacity, with the heft to handle richer foods and the energy to be enjoyed by itself.
