A perfect aperitif, Delamotte Brut can also be a graceful companion at the table; wonderful aromas of white flesh fruit, pear and ginger overlie the elegant touch of minerality that carries the wine on the palate. Imposing its wonderful fruit and underlying minerality, the well-rounded and distinctive Champagne Delamotte Brut strikes a clearly distinguished note amidst the monochord of non-vintage bruts. Champagne Delamotte brut imposes a style with its dominating majority of Grand Cru Chardonnay. Each grape plays its fundamental role, as Chardonnay sets the wine in place, its foundation and roots, a small portion of Pinot Noir helps give the wine more width and fruit and a smaller portion of Pinot Meunier, a less acidic grape, brings its aromatic charm to produce a brut that does not rely on reserve wines for character but finds personality at its roots. Delamotte is a Champagne house more than 250 years old (it is the fifth oldest Champagne house) founded in Reims in 1760 by François Delamotte, a vineyard owner.
