Only sourced from Grand Cru vineyards, the Blanc de Blancs from Delamotte was aged on the lees for five years prior to disgorgement in 2017. This opens with bright lemon peel, kumquat and Asian pear on the nose. Building in the glass, the wine shows off a sexy mousse, revealing a wonderful effervescence. Granny Smith apple, sourdough bread, and kumquat shortbread flavors come to mind. There is a wonderful elegance to this wine.
