Wine of the Week: Delamotte Brut Champagne NV

ChampagneDelamotteBRUT 2

Perhaps no other entity on earth is as synonymous with luxury as Champagne. The addition of Champagne can make a special occasion spectacular, a memorable evening unforgettable and turn a gathering into a party. A great Champagne is experienced rather than tasted and should balance complexity and depth with finesse and lightness.

Although Champagne continues to become more and more expensive, there are still those producers who offer exceptional value…and Delamotte is one of them. Delamotte is the sister house of Champagne Salon, which is only made in the very best years and is extremely rare and expensive. And while Salon makes only one wine, a vintage blanc de blanc from a single vineyard (blanc de blanc is made from 100% Chardonnay) Delamotte makes an entire range of outstanding bubbles.

The non-vintage brut (which is a blend of wines from several vintages) is composed of 50% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier.  This is everything a great non-vintage Champagne should be, seemingly dancing on the palate with notes of apple, peach, minerality and a nice floral component. A true beauty and at $50-$60 on the shelf this is an excellent value as far as true Champagnes go.

We will be featuring Champagne Delamotte at our Vamps & Vixens Halloween Event at the the legendary Lougheed House here in Calgary Saturday, October 31st. Contact me for more information jesse@vinearts.ca or (403)-813-3913.
