94pts Jeb Dunnuck

The standout in the lineup was the 2007 Brut Blanc De Blancs Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger which is 100% Chardonnay all from grand cru vineyards. It offers a ripe, sexy, full-bodied style as well as classic notes of baked apples, brioche, buttered citrus, and hazelnut. With roughly 70-80% of the blend going through full malolactic fermentation, this powerful, concentrated beauty is drinking terrific today, yet will certainly keep for another 10-15 years

Some light toffee and lemon blossom aromas make for an attractive nose, with plenty of lemon citrus, white peach and grilled hazelnuts, too. The palate has a clean, dry and finely detailed texture. Lemon peel and fresh grapefruit flavors hold super fresh. Drink now.

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Disgorged in May 2015, Delamotte's white-golden colored 2007 Blanc de Blancs (dosage Brut) opens with a pure, fresh, intense and smoky/chalky bouquet with white fruit aromas, orange/lemon, brioche, nut and toffee flavors. Pure, fresh and elegant on the palate, this is a concentrated, complex and juicy yet finessed and tensioned Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. It is tight but creamy and harmonious and reveals concentrated lemon juice flavors in the long, mineral finish.

92pts Wine Enthusiast

Delamotte, the sister house of the legendary Salon, is based in the Côte des Blancs so it has plenty of experience with Chardonnay. This crisp, fruity and lightly toasty wine shows well-balanced freshness and poise.

91pts Wine Spectator

A firm Champagne, softened by the creamy mousse that carries floral and fresh herb notes lacing tightly knit flavors of pippin apple, kumquat and smoke-tinged minerality. Drink now through 2020.

Winemaker Notes

A wine of great depth, rich in taste and aromas, Delamotte Blanc de Blancs vintage 2007 is an immense Blanc de Blancs, very subtle and full of freshness. It is made for pleasure from aperitif to dessert.
