CHAMPAGNE DELAMOTTE - ROSE NV
***Silver Medallist - Champagne Masters 2018***
There is a hint of the exotic about the making of DELAMOTTE Rosé champagne, and perhaps a little eccentricity too!
It is made with the traditional bleeding technique rarely used in Champagne. Colour and aromatic range are extracted from the grape skin. How? They are left to macerate in their skin before and/or during fermentation. This delivers an elegant and structured wine thanks to Grand Cru Pinot Noir (80%) growing on the south-east facing hillsides of the Montagne de Reims: Ambonnay, Bouzy and Tours-sur-Marne.
In association with Chardonnay (20%) from Mesnil-sur-Oger, this rosé is a dazzling salmon pink in colour, with an amazingly complex wine sparkling beneath. After bottling, DELAMOTTE Rosé matures for around two years on the lees before disgorgement
HOW TO ENJOY
Chilled but never cold (around 8°C) and served in an elegant tulip-shaped wine glass. And the ideal accompaniments for this sophisticated wine with slightly smoky notes are raspberry charlotte, red fruit soups and sugary desserts of the kind that Marcel Proust would surely never forget.
On the palate, this wine expresses elegant flavours and notes of delicate fruit.
Well-reputed among sommeliers and wine enthusiasts, our champagnes are known for their consistency, delicacy and exceptional character. For over 260 years, we have been developing four different cuvées, a small range that gives amateurs and experts alike a clear understanding of the art of champagne. Our Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Blancs vintage, Brut and Rosé are quintessentiel champagne wines.
At CHAMPAGNE DELAMOTTE, we are proud to share our savoir-faire as it is our firm belief that champagne is a universal language that anybody can learn.
From Cramant to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, through Avize and Oger : all are found in the Côte des Blancs. Its location is one of DELAMOTTE’s richest assets. The chalky soil, the flora and the sloping vineyards give the grapes their exceptional character, delivering delicate, consistent champagnes. Championing this exceptional terroir, drawing the best from it while maintaining absolute respect for the vines and the environment - that's what CHAMPAGNE DELAMOTTE is all about.
