90% Grand Cru fruit. Sister property to Salon. 5th oldest house in Champagne. Fresh and deep with citrus flavors and nice minerality. V dry.

So round and suave with razor sharp acid. Loads of mid palate here, great length. Not a bad drop of bubbly. Rich pomaceous fruit, sweet cream, brioche, button mushrooms, crumbled chalk. ‘04s from Cdblanc are drinking so well right now

From our friends at Salon, this sparkler is 90% grand gru Chard with the balance in red grapes and it smells like it too. It has a great yeasty Chard nose with hints of lemon and reminds me of an English-style cuvée with its toasty notes with great lemon backing acid. Though labelled brut this is more at brut nature so lean is the dosage. I love it: shuck some oysters and lets get after it!

Delamonte is a sister house to Salon. This 07 has little or no Salon grapes as Salon surprisingly did make an 07 vintage champagne. In a difficult Salon vintage, Salon grapes can make it into the Delamonte. Bruised apple cider, green apple, overripe Bosc pear, pineapple rhine, citrus blend(tangerine dominated), butterscotch candy, toffee, citrus blossoms, brioche, bright acidity & wet sandy chalk/minerals and a long, long, long finish. It's 9.1 but seriously pushing 9.2.

Declassified Salon, or stand alone great wine all it's self, always appreciate the '04 acidity, this has a little less of it though, but it a great Champagne vintage.
