Champagne for the Week-End

Champagne Delamotte Brut N/V

This is a small house located in the Côtes des Blancs in Le Menil-sur-Oger and it is the sister house of Champagne Salon. It is made from 50% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier.IMG_3303

The wine is aged for 30-36 months on the lees and no oak is used.  There is no particular yeast selection and a light dosage of sugar is added. This is a fresh, fruity elegant champagne with hints of ginger, pear with good mineralty and a slight touch of toast. $38IMG_3372

It went very well with the smoked salmon, gravlax, and Kerrygold butter with pumpernickel bread we had for a late lunch.
