Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2008

$79

The 2008 Delamotte is a deep, resonant Champagne endowed with stunning lays of depth. In 2008 Delamotte has all of the kaleidoscopic, multi-dimensional personality of the vintage, but the full malolactic fermentation softens some of the natural angularity of the year. Pastry, vanillin, baked apple, dried flowers and chamomile are all beautifully sculpted in the glass. This is one of the most accessible young 2008 Champagnes readers will come across, but there is real staying power and more than enough depth to support many years of fine drinking...

A tinge of green to the straw yellow colour. Very fine bead - aromas of citrus and a little honey. The palate is brilliant showing the complexity from 9 years on lees and giving a creamy texture with a mineral saline touch. Very impressive for what is basically the 2nd label of Salon. I could drink copious amounts of this. Celebrating our Wedding Anniversary.

Dull light straw gold. Great energy in the glass with ample fine bubbles. Has a stone and light citrus driven nose that comes across as a nice mousse. Long finish. This is great juice. Had to try this but the rest pack will sit for some needed age.

A very fresh nose of pears, apples and brioche. A zesty palate that is showing nice length and some complexity.

Fresh and pure, with excellent weight and acidity, young but approachable and hard to stop drinking.
