91 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The latest release of Delamotte's NV Brut Rosé is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of tangerine, red plums, cherries and spices. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and precise, with a fleshy core of fruit, bright acids and a pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a chalky finish. As ever, it's a seamless, elegant wine." 09/21
92 Points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com: "Sweet, charming, rose perfume here with almond paste and fresh bread dough. The palate is smooth, velvety and charming with a lightly tangy core that delivers a fresh, elegant impression. Pink-fruit finish. Drink now." 09/18
90 Points, Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator: "Delicate notes of wild strawberry, kumquat and white peach are laced with toast and almond skin accents in this fresh, elegant rosé Champagne. Drink now through 2022. 6,000 cases made, 250 cases imported." 11/20
91+ Points, John Gilman, View from The Cellar: "The current release of Delamotte non-vintage Brut Rosé is really a lovely example. My understanding is that the blend is a preponderance of pinot noir over chardonnay, with eighty percent of the blend pinot and twenty percent chardonnay. The lovely deep salmon color comes from skin contact, rather than the addition of red still wine. The dosage is seven grams per liter. The wine offers up a lovely nose of cherries, a touch of rhubarb, chalky soil tones, woodsmoke and rye bread. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a fine core, elegant mousse and lovely length and grip on the wide open, but still youthful finish. This wine will continue to blossom with bottle age, but it is already very tasty and easy to drink. Fine juice." #77 10/18
92 Points, Jed Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com: "The medium amber/salmon colored NV Brut Rosé Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger is made from 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. It has a caramelized, brioche-scented style as well as plenty of strawberry and cherry fruits, building, medium-bodied richness, and a pretty, elegant texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s a classy, beautifully balanced rosé to drink over the coming 7-8 years." 03/18
