“A late disgorged Champagne, with 16 years on its lees, this is very fine indeed. Its intensity derives from the Chardonnay from the producer’s home village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, That gives classic steeliness, minerality as well as textured white fruits that meld into the wine and leave a soft aftertaste. The wine is still remarkably full of life showing no signs of aging. Drink now. “

“The 2002 Blanc de Blancs Millésimé Collection is showing superbly, bursting from the glass with aromas of lemon curd, lime zest, white flowers, praline and walnut oil. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with muscular structuring extract, incisive acids and a long, complex finish. This is a beautifully complete, expressive vintage Delamotte that is beginning to drink well.”

“This new release of Delamotte’s 2002 Blanc de Blancs Millésimé Collection is showing as well as ever, wafting from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, lemon curd, crisp yellow apple, toasted brioche and nougat. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it’s generous but incisive, with an ample core of fruit, ripe but racy acids and a long, elegantly toasty finish. While it’s already drinking well it will show even more complexity with a few more years on cork.”

“This is vintage Champagne in a crowd-pleasing, aperitif style for its freshness and overall harmony. It’s fine and creamy in texture, with a lightly mouthwatering backbone of acidity supporting the delicate mesh of Gala apple, lemon sorbet, almond biscotti and a smoky mineral note that plays on the finish. Drink now through 2027.”

About The Winery
When François Delamotte - a vineyard owner in Reims - founded the House in 1760, could he ever have imagined that his champagne would still be gracing our tables three centuries later? Hidden away in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Delamotte continues the tradition started by its founder. Champagnes produced with bold simplicity. They owe their subtlety to the Côte des Blancs. This terroir draws forth a rich balance from the powerful, airy Chardonnays.

Well-reputed among sommeliers and wine enthusiasts, the champagnes from Delamotte are known for their consistency, delicacy and exceptional character. For over 260 years, the team has been developing four different cuvées, a small range that gives amateurs and experts alike a clear understanding of the art of champagne. The Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Blancs vintage, Brut and Rosé are quintessentiel champagne wines.

From Cramant to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, through Avize and Oger : all the grapes are found in the Côte des Blancs. Its location is one of Delamotte's richest assets. The chalky soil, the flora and the 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.
