Delamotte NV Mesnil-sur-Oger

Took advantage of the early summer days that we experience now in Bucharest and had a barbecue on SUN with some friends in my courtyard. As fish was today’s staple, it was the white wine that dominated the line-up of wines.

First wine served was a Champagne from a producer established in 1760 and now owned by the same people behind the very expensive Salon. Chardonnay based Champagne from the Le Mesnil sur Oger.

Delamotte Brut NV Mesnil-sur-Oger

Medium yellow lemon color with some green reflections and fine smooth bubbles. Intense nose without the richness and perhaps a bit more austere compared to Egly-Ouriet Pinot Meunier based Champagne, but still charming and refreshing, with plenty of aromas of citrus fruits, wet rocks, almonds and surprisingly very little yeasty aromas . Medium body with sharp acidity and good precision on the palate. Medium finish, citric and refreshing. (89-90/100)
