Pronounced salinity, coupled with sweet vanilla and buttery toast. Diminished acidity.

The House of Delamotte is the fifth-oldest Champagne house in the region, founded in 1760, with small production of 25,000 cases annually. One of Champagne's best-kept secrets, they are the sister winery of the legendary House of Salon. Aromas of fruit and chalk start off and carries to the palate with crisp stone fruit flavors, lively acidity and gentle bubbles. Lingering finish ending with a big dose of nicely balanced chalky mineral character.

Otroligt frisk, bra äpplighet, viss brödighet och lite lagerjästighet

[Tasted on December 7, 2018 on JAL Flight from Tokyo to Los Angeles]

Citrus, brioche, ginger. Chalky minerality with a hint of smokiness. Gentle mousse and nice balance.
