2002 Delamotte ‘Collection’ Blanc de Blancs


Delamotte is sister house to the legendary Salon, the latter a super-premium Blanc de Blancs made from a single 1 hectare vineyard in Le Mesnil, plus grapes sourced from 20 other Grand Cru vineyards in the area. Typical production is 8000 cases.

Located in the middle of the Côtes des Blancs in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Delamotte is a small house making only high-quality Champagnes, with a total production of around 50 000 cases annually. Four wines are made: a non-vintage blend, a non-vintage Blanc de Blancs, a Rosé and a vintage Blanc de Blancs. Salon, of course, makes just one wine, a Blanc de Blancs, and only in the best years. Both houses are part of the Laurent-Perrier group.

They’re special Champagnes. Delamotte is thought to be an insider’s Champagne, because people who aren’t in the know never seem to have heard of this house, even though it is one of the very best in the region.

A selection of the greatest vintages has been ageing Delamotte cellars. This includes the Blanc de Blancs 1999, 2002 and 2004. Disgorged upon request after a minimum of 15 years of maturation on the lees, these “Collection” wines are reaching their peak but retain a freshness and zing, albeit tamed by the years.”

94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This new release of Delamotte’s 2002 Blanc de Blancs Millésimé Collection is showing as well as ever, wafting from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, lemon curd, crisp yellow apple, toasted brioche and nougat. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it’s generous but incisive, with an ample core of fruit, ripe but racy acids and a long, elegantly toasty finish. While it’s already drinking well it will show even more complexity with a few more years on cork.
