Based in the Chardonnay region of the Côte des Blancs, it's no surprise that this producer has a dominance of that grape in its blend. The wine has great minerality as well as tight acidity and delicious citrus flavors...

The wine has great minerality as well as tight acidity and delicious citrus flavors. It's a dry, finely balanced wine to drink now.

Vibrant aromas of lemon pith, pear skin and honeysuckle, with a chalky topnote. Dry, sharply focused lemon and lime flavors become deeper with air and pick up brioche and ginger nuances. Firm, chewy and dry, finishing with very good clarity and stony persistence. -- Josh Raynolds

A cleverly orchestrated reductive edge to the nose, this has a layer of toasted cashew ahead of citrus, peach, spice, fine cherry and raspberry fruits. The palate's nicely crafted to deliver an even and smooth impression. Red fruit flavors run long and smooth, with some fresh bread dough notes too; nicely yeasty to close. Drink now. - Nick Stock

An expressive nose features notes of yeast, Meyer lemon and discreet apple and baked bread nuances. There is a moderately firm mousse supporting the delicious if restrained medium weight flavors where the finish is quite dry but not austere. This clearly has some older stock in it and the extended lees aging shows as well. In a word, lovely. And note that this could easily be held to good effect for several years and that’s what I would suggest. 2018+

The Delamotte NV Brut blends approximately 55% Chardonnay with 35% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier.

The Delamotte NV Brut blends approximately 55% Chardonnay with 35% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier. It is clear, round and spicy on the predominantly fruity and vinous nose with its delicate chalk and hazelnut flavors. On the palate this is a lithe, finessed, fresh and elegant Brut with good structure and a pure, salty-mineral and cleansing finish. The mousse is highly delicate, the whole performance almost filigreed yet well structured. This is a delicious Brut. My sample is based on the 2013 vintage that was disgorged in July 2016 with a dosage of eight grams per liter. Tasted November 2017. - Stephan Reinhardt

This mineral-driven version offers a smoky overtone to the flavors of poached pear and Meyer lemon zest, with hints of toasted brioche and almond. Subtle, offering a finely detailed bead and a spiced finish. Drink now...

Pale straw in the glass, this Champagne leads on the nose with notes of fresh apples and pears along with a touch of candied citrus. The fruit is pleasantly nuanced by a dry, stone-like minerality and baked pie crust. Transitioning to the palate, this wine’s effervescence is subtle and elegant, with a crisp and vibrant acidic spine that makes it jump in the mouth. It leaves the drinker with a long, pleasant finish that perfectly coats the entire palate. Pair with good times of any kind, green salads or fresh seafood. It could cellar for another 5 years or so but it’s in a great spot now so why wait?

This... 50% chardonnay 30% pinot noir 20% pinot meunier. Light yellow gold in color this complex wine has forward aromas of ripe apple and bright expressions of lemon with understated notes of toast and fresh yeast. This flavorful Champagne offers breadth across the midpalate and a long finish propelled by integrated acids. Not creamy as such the lingering citrus infused flavors mingle with a touch of caramel in the finish.
