Delamotte Champagne Brut
In a bottle of their Brut, an orchestra of three grape varieties plays a particularly balanced score. The 55% Chardonnay content forms the backbone of its structure while the 35% Pinot Noir from Tours-sur-Marne, Bouzy and Ambonnay give it depth and fruit. The 10% Pinot Meunier perfects these harmonies with aromatic density.
Without ever assaulting the palate, this is a beautifully powerful champagne. Freshness and roundness merge to deliver a clean, fruity finish, with well-balanced and elegant length on the palate.

ABOUT THE WINERY
François Delamotte, born in Reims in 1722, was “Conseiller-échevin” of Reims, captain of the bourgeois militia. Large owner of vineyards in Cumières. he establishes in 1760 a house of Wines of Champagne under his name in Reims, in the building located on the corner of the rue Cérès and the rue Marmousets, where his residence was located. The cellars were beneath the building in question. On the family blazon, the motto « Vive et me ama » (live and love me) was since that adopted.
He goes after in partnership with his eldest son Alexandre to create “Delamotte Père & Fils” (“Father and Son”).
In 1988, Bernard de Nonancourt, establishes the Laurent-Perrier group by integrating the familly Champagne house Delamotte. This same year, Bernard gets the opportunity to purchase the neighbor of Delamotte, the legendary Maison Champagne Salon. He then fulfills a long-standing dream.
The destiny of both Salon and Delamotte houses have been linked ever since.
