100% Grand Cru Chardonnay, this wine sees no oak, and undergoes partial malolactic fermentation.
Four crus of the Côte des Blancs (Le Mesnil-sur- Oger, Avize, Cramant, Oger) come into the blend of Champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs 2004. As early as September 18 the first grapes show high quaity, the potential alcohol and acidity are perfectly balanced. The wine then spends 8 years on the lees in cellar.
The 2004 Blanc de Blancs displays pale gold with green reflections, there is a dense flow of fine and delicate bubbles.The nose is sharp and very fresh, nuanced and structured, with aromas of bittter oranges and orange flower. First impressions on the palate are direct and gracious with many layers of peach, yellow-fleshed fruits, mirabelle and quince that contrast with an almost salty finish.
