Delamotte's vintage Blanc de Blanc is a blend of Chardonnays from the Grand Cru villages of Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Chouilly and Cramant, in roughly equal proportions. Disgorged after approximately six years on the lees. See Champagne Delamotte's website for more information.

Pale lemon yellow. Rather lovely, gentle smoky oak and lemon meringue pie on the nose. On the palate clean fresh sour lemons, winter jasmine and herbal notes developing an enthusiastic burst of tropical fruit - passion fruit, blood orange and kiwis. Long laser sharp minerality and crisp white citrus freshness. Beautifully elegant, lime juiciness, precision winemaking. The hints of autolysis give hidden cream and vanilla richness and complexity without distracting from the fruit. Really love this! Incredibly vibrant, zesty, austere and fresh just as much as it is rich, ripe, fruity, intense. A bottle just to myself please.
