Delamotte is the fifth oldest Champagne that originally started in Reims but has since moved to Mesnil-Sur-Oger. Champagne is owned by the same family as not only Laurent-Perrier but the infamous Champagne Salon.

Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir 80%, Chardonnay 20%

Soil Type: Chalk & Limestone

Vinification/Oak Usage: The red pinot noir grapes are left to macerate in their skin before and/or during fermentation. This delivers an elegant and structured wine thanks to Grand Cru Pinot Noir growing on the southeast facing hillsides of the Montagne de Reims: Ambonnay, Bouzy, and Tours-sur-Marne. It is then blended withChardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger, After bottling, Delamotte Rosé matures for around three years on the lees before disgorgement. Fermentation takes place in 10% new French oak.

Delamotte was founded in Reims in 1760 by François Delamotte, a vineyard  owner. At more than 250 years old, it is the fifth oldest house in  Champagne. Alexandre Delamotte brought the cellars, caves, and offices  of the House of Delamotte to one beautiful mansion at the end of the 18th  century and in 1828, his brother, Nicolas Louis Delamotte, also known  as the Chevalier Delamotte Barrachin, assumed management of the House.  In his tenure with the Chamber of Commerce, Nicolas was well known for  hosting spectacular events, namely the coronation of France’s last king,  Charles X. The House was sold to the Lanson family in the 1830s, who  later started producing a Lanson label. It was eventually acquired by  Marie-Louise de Nonancourt, née Lanson, in the period between the two  World Wars. In 1927, Marie-Louise made the decision to transfer the  activities of the house of Delamottte to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The  management of the company was entrusted to the capable hands of  Marie-Louise’s youngest son, Charles de Nonancourt. It was Charles who  established the golden rules for the business: ensure a consistent  quality by purposefully limiting production and maintain at least three  harvests in the cellars at all times. In 1988, the House of Delamotte  joined forces with the still enigmatic Champagne Salon under the  umbrella of the parent company, Laurent-Perrier, led by Charles’  brother, Bernard. Today, the House of Delamotte and its sister company  Champagne Salon are under the direction of Didier Depond.
