Delamotte's Rose offering is created through the traditional saignee method. That is to extract colour from the skins of Pinot Noir grapes during maceration and fermentation. This method, to contrast simply adding red wine, needs to be skillfully watched so as to extract just enough colour and structure from the skins without sacrificing the elegance of the white wines.
Champagne Delamotte shares much of its history with Champagne Lanson, as the two estates were founded as one by Francois Delamotte in 1760 and inherited by Nicolas-Louis Delamotte. Jean-Baptiste Lanson, a long-time friend and business associate of the Delamotte family, would succeed Nicolas-Louis on the latter's death and rename the estate Maison J.B. Lanson.
The house of Delamotte was not completely integrated into Lanson and its remains were inherited, in 1924, by widow Marie Louise de Nonancourt, of the Lanson family, who wished to revive the house. One of her first wise business decisions was to relocate operations to Mesnil-sur-Oger, the capital of Chardonnay in the region. Further developments were the puchases of Laurent-Perrier in 1924 and later, by her son in 1988, the house of Champagne Salon.
Today, Delamotte and its neighbour, Salon, are managed in unison with Salon effectively being the prestige cuvee of Delamotte. If Salon is not made, then the grapes are used in Delamotte's wines.
The colour is quite a full for a pink. Good sweetness of fruit on the nose, this is calm. Good freshness and balance again. Nicely delicate with ripe red fruit aromas on the nose and finish.
