It is pale like a summer dawn: in the glass, it radiates light. Its nose is frank, pure, straight, deep and has great character. In the mouth, it is precise, its minerality is tense, dry, mouthwatering, contrary, Baroque again. And finally, it delivers the rich aromas of a brioche just out of the oven; in other words, it embraces tenderly after having been put to the test. This truly excellent wine certainly is full of promise. Food Pairing: This powerful, concentrated wine is worthy of sensual foods with deep complex taste. Truffles come to mind, a chicken stuffed with truffle mousseline, or quite simply a truffle camembert or brie. A sole meunière would do equally well, an oven-roast turbot, a golden shoulder of lamb. Or, why not, a cream of cèpes gently cooked under a sealed pastry lid? And so on to the show-stopping patisserie centrepiece.

The 2014 Blanc de Blancs is seriously impressive. Ample in feel, Delamotte is especially rich in 2014, and yet there is plenty of freshness to balance things out. This is an especially savory style for Delamotte, and one that works so well. Dried lemon peel, pastry, almond, dried herbs and chamomile open in a beautifully translucent Blanc des Blancs that marries power and finesse. I can't wait to see how it ages.

Delamotte's just-released 2014 Blanc de Blancs has turned out very well indeed, opening in the glass with scents of citrus zest, crisp orchard fruit, fresh bread and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and incisive, with excellent depth at the core, racy acids and a chalky finish, this isn't as muscular as the 2008 or 2012, but it has real cut and persistence and should age very gracefully indeed.

From the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger on the Côte des Blancs, this well-textured Champagne shows a crisp apple freshness underlined by strong minerality. At seven years past vintage, the wine is just starting to lose its initial freshness and develop attractive toasty elements. Drink now. Roger Voss

A finely-meshed, linear Champagne, with racy acidity and a citrusy overtone driving flavors of poached apricot, biscuit, candied lemon peel and a toasty hint of brioche. Fine and creamy. Drink now through 2026. 7,100 cases made, 500 cases imported.
