Delamotte

Le Mesnil Sur Oger Brut Champagne Blend

🏅 Rating 91+/100 (4,15⭐)

Delamotte NV Magnum

Reductive style with underlying Chalky Chardonnay minerality of Côte de Blanc. Full of flowers & tropical fruit. Very sunny and warm base vintage. My guess would be 2012 base. Lovely champagne for relaxing branch with friends and oysters.

Blend:
Chardonnay : 55%
Pinot noir : 35%
Pinot Meunier : 10%

Along with its "sister" winery Champagne Salon, Delamotte is the historical House of the Laurent-Perrier group.

Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2012

Great balance, decent depth but I need to put this down - too easy to drink! I would ask for a little more acidity. — 2 months ago

Brut Champagne Blend

Intense nose brooding with dried fruit, floral, oyster shell. Structured and lengthy. A fantastic introduction to the world of truly fine champagne. Love it and personally prefer this assemblage to the BdB — 2 months ago

Le Mesnil Sur Oger Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2008

Straw gold. Vibrant and active. Notes of bread basket, kiwi, a little apricot and a lot of gravel stone. The mouth feel is frothy yet soft like mousse. Lots of energy. Great juice, huge potential and upside. Based on this bottle I can only wonder what the 08 Salon is like... — 2 months ago

Collection 1999 Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Chardonnay 1999

The 1999 Delamotte is a fine Champagne for drinking right now. Honeysuckle, nuts, apple. A fine fizz from mini-Salon. — a year ago

Cuvée Rosé Brut Champagne Pinot Noir

9.2

On the nose, strawberries, cherries, black cherries, blood oranges, soft, unstated chalkiness, volcanic minerals and fresh red & pink roses. On the palate, its delicate, fruit driven. More fruit concentration that the Billecart-Salmon but less than the Ruinart Rosés. Strawberries, cherries, black cherries, blood oranges, tangerines, nice chalkiness, round acidity, brioche & pink roses. It's much more floral than the Billecart or the Ruinart. However, the finish is not quite as long as the other two as well. But, it's still very nice. A little history on the house. Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 and is the main company of the Laurent-Perrier Group, whose other properties include; Salon, De Castellane and Delamotte & Chateau Malakoff. Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 when a former cooper and bottler, Alphonse Pierlot purchased two parcels of land named "Plaisances" and "La Tour Glorieux" in Tours-sur-Marne. When Pierlot passed he willed the company to his cellar master, Eugene Laurent, who ran it with his wife, Mathilde Emilie Perrier. In 1925 Veuve Mathilde died, and left the company to Eugenie Hortense Laurent. Eugenie sold the company to Mary-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt in 1939. In 1949 Bernard de Nonancourt became the owner of the company and saw it become one of the largest family-owned Champagne houses. The de Nonancourt family still retains majority ownership today. Check out those old moldy bottles in the small photo on the left. They've remained untouched for a very long time. — 3 years ago
