A great Champagne is first and foremost a great wine. This is the challenge that drives Champagne Delamotte and its sister house, the mythical Champagne Salon, both located in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, France, one of the most prized Grand Cru villages of the Côte des Blancs. The two sister houses share the same ambition: delivering all wine connoisseurs around the world the greatest expression of Grand Cru Chardonnay of Champagne.
Founded in 1760 by vineyard owner François Delamotte, and as such the fifth oldest house of the region, Champagne Delamotte is the right Champagne for any occasion: day and night, grand celebrations or small gatherings.
Enjoy it as an aperitif for the sheer pleasure of sharing Champagne, match it with delicate dishes, savour it when dining at a fine restaurant or for a casual picnic. Occasions to share a bottle of Champagne Delamotte are as varied as spontaneous.
The fruit of one single terroir, the Côte des Blancs, one single growth, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, one single grape varietal, Chardonnay, one single exceptional year, Champagne Salon makes exception its rule. These rare vintages - thirty seven in a century - are chosen for their perfection and are available after being cellared in the bottle for an average of ten years, revealing a rare combination of complexity and finesse. Champagne Salon is the vision of a wine aesthete, Eugène Aimé Salon, who created in 1905 the first Blanc de Blancs Champagne ever. The limited production is the fruit of historically selected plots, of which one is essential: the Jardin Salon. Balance is the embodiment of perfection at this precise location.
