Smoke, slate, candied lemon and crushed rocks are some of the signatures. Striking in its precision and nuance, the 2004 is once again absolutely brilliant. Simply put, the 2004 is a phenomenal Delamotte that shows just how compelling this vintage is in the Côte des Blancs.

This is the best Delamotte vintage since 1996, a ripe and rich wine that brings out the chalky soil character with a strong mineral content. It has weight along with a relatively high dosage that gives softness. It is balanced, fruity and ready to drink. - RV

The 2004 Delamotte Blanc de Blancs was produced from grapes grown in the four grand cru villages of Mesnil, Avize, Cramant and Oger and spent eight years on the lees prior to disgorgement. The wine is fermented entirely in stainless steel and only a percentage of the vins clairs underwent malo in this vintage. At age ten, the wine is still very young and racy, but it has fine potential. The bouquet is a very fine blend of pear, wheat toast, chalky soil tones, plenty of smokiness, white peach and a bit of hazelnut. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and well-balanced, with a good core, fine focus, elegant mousse and a long, primary finish. There is still just a touch of backend bitterness here that is a sign of the youth of this wine, and a year or two in the cellar should allow the wine to fully blossom and start to hit on all cylinders. 2015- 2030+. 91+

This drinks like a refined and focused white Burgundy, creamy, toasty and smoky in its flavors. There’s juicy density to the wine, but rather than fruit, it’s centered on the mineral pallor of limestone. Pour it with something equally rich, like lobster and cream in a puff pastry shell.
