Champagne Delmotte NV
"A brilliant black grape, blanc de noirs bubbly" (Jane McQuitty, The Times)
"A brilliant black grape, blanc de noirs bubbly, bursting with bright, floral, smoky fruit" (Jane McQuitty, The Times). Over 170 years of experience have assisted in the making of this creamy, berry rich Champagne. It's the work of 5th generation winemaker Julian Fourrier, whose father, Philippe, created this special cuvée in honour of his wife, Brigitte. Her maiden name was Delmotte. The grapes are 100% Pinot Noir taken from vineyards first planted by Philippe and Brigitte – that's romance for you. All the family's 18 hectares of vines lie within Champagne's little known, southerly region, La Côte des Bars. The wine for this fine fizz was gently fermented and aged three years on its lees (twice as long as legally required) to enhance the rich toasty notes of the fizz. Chill down and serve at your next celebration. Or don't wait for an excuse and enjoy!
