Pinot Meunier : 10%
Pinot noir : 35%
Chardonnay : 55%
Delamotte Brut is a blend of approximately 55% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir et 10% pinot meunier, which combine to give a wine of subtle power, appealing freshness, soft curves and a precise, fresh fruit finish : this is a dry and extremely attractive champagne, balanced and elegant. Each grape plays a part, as Chardonnay sets the wine in place, its foundation and roots. Pinot Noir helps give the wine more breadth and depth. A small portion of Pinot Meunier brings its aromatic charm to produce a pure and intense Brut.
Aged on the lees for 30 to 36 months, Delamotte brut receives a light dosage of 7g/l, similar to that of the Delamotte range.
In 1760, Champagne Delamotte was one of only five Champagne houses in the region. Located in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger it is the sister house of Champagne Salon, with which it shares the same viticultural, winemaking and management team.
Vineyard location is the key that guides Delamotte’s expression, defining the house’s elegant and focused style of wine. A house like no other with all its vineyards sourced from the Grands Crus of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize and Cramant for chardonnay, Delamotte is one of the very few négociants to cultivate such a passion for the expression of this unique ward of Champagne.
