The House of Delamotte is the fifth-oldest Champagne house in the region, first founded in 1760. It is located in the heart of the Côte des Blancs. The Delamotte production is small (just 25,000 cases annually) and remains one of Champagne’s best-kept secrets. It is the sister winery of the legendary House of Salon. The two wineries sit side-by-side and are both run by Didier Depond.
The new release is a particularly tasty treat, especially available in the large format size. It’s powerful but not aggressive, with a bold freshness roundness on the palate and a clean, crisp finish.
“Delamotte has always been somewhat of an insider’s house, producing high quality at realistic prices. One of the best buys in exquisitely crafted Champagne.”
– Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

A luscious and generous effort with depth and fine acidity. Anything but austere yet balanced and elegant; fresh, stylish, and long.
91 Points, James Suckling
Quite impressive richness and gently toasty aromas on the nose here with almond, savory and sweet, bready autolysis notes. The palate has a fresh, succulent and smooth feel with soft, citrusy fruit flesh. Holds long. Drink now.
