Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs by Delamotte is unique, a cuvée that stands out in the universe of non-vintage Brut, thanks to the delicate balance between intense fruity aromas and a beautiful mineral texture. This cuvée is essentially composed of Chardonnay, which offers it a touch of freshness and lightness, complemented by Pinot Noir, for its structure and fruity aromas, and Pinot Meunier, for its density. Beautiful roundness and great maturity, qualities developed during the 36 months of aging. Bouquet of beautiful aromas of brioche and fruits, to the taste aromas of white fruits and pear, with a hint of ginger. A champagne that is simply perfect for an aperitif.
A great Champagne is first of all a great wine. With this premise, the Maison Delamotte, "sister" of Salon and also located in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Grand Cru village of the Côte des Blancs, presents itself. Founded in Reims in 1760 by François Delamotte, it is the fifth Champagne house in order of seniority. Only at the end of the 18th century, Alexandre Delamotte buys a small villa in the village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger under which he builds the cellars: the idea is to be close to the suppliers of the most precious grapes, those of Chardonnay. The Maison thrives while remaining small in size (currently around 700,000 bottles are produced), it experiences two important leaps in quality in 1975 and 1988. The first date coincides with the arrival of the Bordeaux winemaker Alain Terrier, who takes care of to reconceptualize the maison style by deepening its philosophy that sees champagne first and foremost as a “pleasure wine”. The vinification in wood is therefore abandoned to switch to steel, convinced that the wine should not be influenced by any extraneous aroma and, therefore, express the terroir and variety with the utmost purity and intensity. It was 1988, however, when Delamotte joined Salon. In 1997, the skilled Didier Depond took over the management of the two "sister" companies, as the last step in the growth path of the two Maisons. "Vive et me Ama": live and love me, Delamotte's motto, proudly recounts the idea of blending modernity and tradition, a complexity at the service of pleasure.
