The 2012 Delamotte Blanc de Blancs is a truly beautiful example of this high quality vintage. The refined and very complex nose wafts from the glass in a classy blend of pear, apple, almond, brioche, chalky minerality and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and still quite youthfully structured, with a fine girdle of acidity, elegant mousse, excellent length and grip and a very promising, snappy finish. This is certainly drinkable today, but it is a puppy and really needs three to five years in the cellar to fully blossom and start to drink with generosity. It is going to age very nicely and will be a first rate example of Blanc de Blancs for at least two or three decades. (Drink between 2019-2050) (9/2019)

A fresh and creamy version, featuring a tang of salinity, layered with pear, kiwifruit, green almond and lime blossom notes. Not a powerhouse, but an elegant crowd-pleaser. Disgorged June 2019. Drink now through 2024. 200 cases imported. (2019) AN
