Regal Rose Champagne: Delamotte’s Rose​

Delamotte is a house that has consistently produced beautiful Champagne ​for decades. The house was founded in 1760 so to say they’ve been around for awhile is no understatement. ​The NV rose is 80% Pinot Noir & 20% Chardonnay that are co-fermented (unusual for Champagne as the process is much more costly to carry out than simply pressing and blending the lots later). ​The Pinot Noir is sourced from Grand Cru vineyards located in the South-East slopes of the Montagne de Reims : Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tours-sur-Marne. The Chardonnay is​ all from​ from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. ​

Pale-pink/ salmon in color, this Rose has a very fine bead. The nose has beautiful range of aromatics: strawberry, honeysuckle & a hint of mineral. The palate shows wonderful red fruits, a hint of pear, lemon and stone on a wonderfully refined, balanced frame. This wine exudes finesse and is the best NV Rose I have tasted in 2015. The price is $79 Net & is well worth your attention.
