Delamotte is one of the oldest Maison de Champagne: it was founded in 1760 in Reims by François Delamotte, a rich vineyards owner. If you are looking for elegance and pureness of the Chardonnay, Delamotte is a guarantee and does not follows the trend of supple and oxydised champagnes.
In Mesnil-sur-Oger they can only produce acid wines with a complex mineral content. Nowadays Delamotte is part of the group Laurent-Perrier, with its operative office in Mesnil-sur-Oger, next to Salon. Despite their occasional cooperation, Delamotte and Salon work independently.
