Grape varietals : 100% Chardonnay

The story

A very high quality harvest… – 2002 … Which suggests an upcoming vintage. A harsh winter settles, especially windy and very wet until mid-March. Followed by a hot, dry and sunny weather, that encourages a rapid flowering. Summer turns out to be very contrasting between rainy periods and dry and warm cycles. The harvest is punctuated by large temperature variations between day and night, which favors the concentration of sugar and the sanitary quality of grapes.

Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Collection 2002 is a wine of a great subtlety, mixing balance and power. Its delicious orange blossom nose lets then appear a fine and generous mouth. Between smoothness and voluptuousness, the sweet aromas of madeleine, combined with candied citrus, reach together the perfect structure, full of length. Refined meals and fine food are definitely the perfect match. The creamy Poularde de Bresse for a festive moment, or simply scallop carpaccio, Iberico ham. The famous creamy risotto also wonderfully reveals the singular aromas of this delicate wine.
