The House of Delamotte
The House of Delamotte was founded in 1760 in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in Mesnil-sur-Oger, making it the sixth oldest house of Champagne.
The Chardonnay grape used to produce these wines come primarily from three villages: Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avive and Oger – all classified as 100% Grand Crus. The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier used for the Brut and Rosé champagne come from the vineyards in Bouzy, Tours-sur-Marne and Ambonnay.

∞∞∞Drinking Notes●Champagne Salon 1997
- Throughout winter and spring the climate alternated between mild weather and extreme cold. On June 11th, flowering began in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Summer was hot and dry, making for excellent ripening conditions. The harvest commenced on September 22nd; during picking the weather was summery but with cold evening temperatures, which encouraged good acidity.● Salon 1997: A Sensuality of Silk
- The wine is pearlescent. A pale, lustrous gold with a fine, lively mousse. The nose is complex yet ethereal. Wonderfully refined, it is intriguing and enticing. Its minerality complemented by hints of white flowers, acacia and hawthorn. A salty note enhances aromas of bread crust, brioche and the merest hint of green apple and hazelnut. The palate is quintessentially pure, the very epitome of balance and restraint. Exuberant on attack the mousse becomes more of a caress whilst bubbles dance playfully on the palate; its delicate allure emulating the sensuous grace of a silk veil at dawn.Seating is Strictly Limited!
