Made by the traditional saignée method and a cofermented blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, the Delamotte NV Brut Rosé displays a beautifully intense dark salmon color followed by a deep and vinous bouquet with delicate red fruit aromas, a subtle touch of brioche, great elegance and subtle freshness. Full-bodied and round yet dry and complex on the palate, this is a dense and mouth-filling but very elegant and refined rosé composed of fruit from great terroirs such as Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tours-sur-Marne (for Pinot) and Mesnil-sur-Oger (for Chardonnay). The finish is pure and fresh, revealing delicate red fruit combined with a clear and balancing structure. Aged for three or four years on the lees, this is an excellent rosé.
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.
