From: Champagne, France
Blend: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Winemaker's Notes. The balance between the dominant Pinot Noir and the smaller percentage of Chardonnay in the Delamotte Rosé gives this wine its beautiful pale rose color. The wine has tiny bubbles with strong red fruit aromas and flavors. It is vivacious, supple and round with a hint of acidity.
It makes a wonderful aperitif, as well as a good companion to poultry dishes or red fruit desserts.

Wonderful aromas of tangerines and peaches with honeysuckle. Full-bodied, yet tight and focused, with lovely energy and brightness. Dried lemon and a hint of ginger. Drink or hold.
WE 92 Wine Enthusiast
A crisp Champagne veering towards dryness, this is textured, with a touch of red fruits set alongside the citrus flavors. The wine is so fresh, so light and poised. Drink the bottling now.
JD 92 Jeb Dunnuck
From the base vintage of 2019, the NV Champagne Brut Rosé is Chardonnay with the addition of 12% still red wine of Pinot Noir from Bouzy, Tours sur Marne, and Ambonnay. There are 8 grams per liter of dosage added. Light pink in color, the nose is savory with blood orange peel, quinine, and fresh peach, and the palate is dry, floral, and lightly saline. The Chardonnay drives the character of the wine with a focused structure and chalky texture. This would be a wonderful aperitif or to have with raw preparations such as sushi. Best after 2022.
WS 91 Wine Spectator
This elegant rosé is a pretty wild-salmon hue, with a hint of honey enmeshed with flavors of dried apricot, oyster shell and anise. Lightly juicy and appealing, with a refined finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now.
RP 90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The latest release of Delamotte's NV Brut Rosé offers up expressive aromas of red apples, crisp stone fruit, cherries and fresh pastry, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping palate. Comparatively rich and textural for this routinely elegant, fine-boned cuvée, it's more gastronomic than usual.
W&S90Wine & Spirits
This is a concentrated rosé, its earthy fruit edged by pink-grapefruit acidity. Smoky and a little green, it would pair well with the fattiness of prosciutto and melon, or the deep flavors of pears poached in red wine.
The House of Delamotte is the fifth-oldest Champagne house in the region, founded in 1760. It is located in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Delamotte is small (just 25,000 cases annually) and one of Champagne's best-kept secrets. It is the sister winery of the legendary House of Salon. The two wineries sit side-by-side and are both run by Didier Depond.
"Delamotte has always been somewhat of an insider's house, producing high quality at realistic prices. One of the best buys in exquisitely crafted Champagne."
- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
