Tasting notes

Robert Parker
Tasted: 30/11/2018
Drink: 2020-2035


The 2008 Blanc de Blancs offers a deep, clear, fresh and complex bouquet of chalk, lemon leaves, lemon zest and concentrated yellow fruit expressions (mirabelles) that are discreet but give the background prospect of this remarkable wine. Delamotte's 2008 combines freshness and purity with maturity, complexity and mineral tension. It is almost austere toward the finish but has...

...lots of charm, finesse and elegance and is driven by clean acidity. The grapes for the 2008 were sourced in Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Oger, Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry, and the blend was aged on the second lees for nine years before disgorgement. Tasted from lot L43DO20618V, November 2018.
