Delamotte history


When François Delamotte – a vineyard owner in Reims – founded the House in 1760, could he ever have imagined that his champagne would still be gracing our tables three centuries later? Hidden away in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Delamotte continues the tradition started by its founder. Champagnes produced with bold simplicity. They owe their subtlety to the Côte des Blancs. This terroir draws forth a rich balance from the powerful, airy Chardonnays.

Champagne Delamotte comprises grapes harvested from four of the most hallowed villages in the Côte des Blancs : Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Oger and Cramant, all classified as 100% Grand Cru. This is the heartland of the Côte des Blancs, whose ancient chalky soils allow the chardonnay grape to express its true vivacity and freshness.
Unsurprisingly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger takes centre-stage, with its incisive minerals, lissom purity and fine white line of salt. Elegant, upright Avize refines the warm, generous fruit of Oger, while Cramant leaves its diaphanous, chiffon trail of smoke and silk. Chouilly harmonises and lengthens the blend, while Oiry quietly yields its sensuous curve and delicate, lacy acids.
