Champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Collection 1999Grape varietals : 100% Chardonnay
A huge harvest – 1999
The biggest harvest ever in the Champagne History ! One of the warmest summer of the century ! However, the mild winter and the warm early spring, are followed by a sequence of hailstorms. Then, the weather recovered and the flower beautifully blossomed, on June 11th, for the chardonnay. A few rainfalls in early july, and a surprising august : cold snap and lunar eclipse on the 11th. The harvest look great, start well, but end up in the rain. The production, already big, becomes huge.
Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Collection 1999 is a complete and structured wine. It turns out to be as deep, powerful as bright and complex; its finesse and delicate aromas seduce. Wildly elegant, it unveils a big capacity of ageing, for a still young vintage. It has a high minerality and also a greedy side, that looks like an autumn breakfast, full of pastries.
This multi-facetted wine, will adorn a sudden urge, dress a greedy aperitive and sublimate a refined diner. It could be poured with all delicacies, from starter to dessert, whether you serve poultry or fish.
