The Delamotte Brut is a fine wine that is powerful but not aggressive, with an agreeable freshness, supple roundness on the palate and a clean and fruity finish. Pleasant, well-balanced, with a light golden color, this wine is mature and ready to drink immediately. The bouquet has a hint of citrus, white flowers, and lemon peel. The Brut is delicious as an aperitif and equally delightful with a fruit dessert.
Floral nose, with a hint of soft spice and nectarine; palate is dry but not austere, with stone fruit and a fine mineral tension. Cerebral, satisfying and impressively wrought.

Based in the Chardonnay region of the Côte des Blancs, it's no surprise that this producer has a dominance of that grape in its blend. The wine has great minerality as well as tight acidity and delicious citrus flavors. It's a dry, finely balanced wine to drink now.

Clean and fragrant with red fruit, this wine’s tart cherry and strawberry flavors integrate with the soil character, which acts as a scrim over the fruit. It feels lush within the tight confines of its structure. Built for food, this will accompany roast game birds.
An expressive nose combines a variety of citrus elements along with lovely brioche and yeast scents. There is excellent punch to the delicious, complex and nicely voluminous flavors that are underpinned by a moderately firm mousse before terminating in a balanced and attractively dry finale. This is really quite good for a basic house brut and worth a look.
91 James Suckling
Quite impressive richness and gently toasty aromas on the nose here with almond, savory and sweet, bready autolysis notes. The palate has a fresh, succulent and smooth feel with soft, citrusy fruit flesh. Holds long. Drink now.
90 Wine Spectator
Subtle and lacy in texture, with a smoky, minerally underpinning and flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue and pickled ginger. Drink through 2018. 6,800 cases imported
90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Delamotte NV Brut is a bright, fresh and aromatic blend of approximately 55% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier that spends 30 to 36 months on the lees prior disgorgement. The current release is based on the 2014 harvest and was disgorged in 2017. It starts with fresh, bright fruit aromas intermixed with lovely brioche and nougat aromas and a delicate Kirsch tone. Mouthfilling, fine and fresh on the palate, this is a charming but serious Champagne from one of the region's oldest houses.
