Wine Advocate

93 Points, Stephen Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Blanc de Blancs offers a deep, clear, fresh and complex bouquet of chalk, lemon leaves, lemon zest and concentrated yellow fruit expressions (mirabelles) that are discreet but give the background prospect of this remarkable wine. Delamotte's 2008 combines freshness and purity with maturity, complexity and mineral tension. It is almost austere toward the finish but has lots of charm, finesse and elegance and is driven by clean acidity. The grapes for the 2008 were sourced in Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Oger, Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry, and the blend was aged on the second lees for nine years before disgorgement. Tasted from lot L43DO20618V, November 2018. " 11/18

Vinous Media

93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2008 Delamotte is a deep, resonant Champagne endowed with stunning lays of depth. In 2008 Delamotte has all of the kaleidoscopic, multi-dimensional personality of the vintage, but the full malolactic fermentation softens some of the natural angularity of the year. Pastry, vanillin, baked apple, dried flowers and chamomile are all beautifully sculpted in the glass. This is one of the most accessible young 2008 Champagnes readers will come across, but there is real staying power and more than enough depth to support many years of fine drinking. Dosage is 6.5 grams per liter." 7/18

James Suckling

94 Points, James Suckling: "Beautifully expressive and complex nose with yellow-citrus and stone-fruit aromas, delivered in a subtly toasty shroud of nutty complexity. The palate is nicely delivered in a layered, fresh-lemon and grapefruit style with a smooth and elegant, soft-pastry finish. Drink now." 9/18
