Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A product of maceration, and 80% Pinot Noir co-fermented with Chardonnay, Delamotte-s NV Brut Rose L10312 is surprisingly orange in color, but its aromas and flavors remind me of the other outstanding bottlings I tasted from this house alongside, incorporating as it does high-toned nut essences; succulent apple and melon fruit - here with hints of strawberry and orange rind; and revealing in its finish a rich, sweet-saline lobster shell reduction that tugs at the salivary glands. This hasn-t quite the textural finesse of those others, as there is a faint sense of black tea smokiness seguing into tanninity; but at the same time, raising the residual sugar to eight grams really doesn-t assuage that, whereas it does engender a slight, detached sense of overt sweetness. But paired carefully, this should serve very well over at least the next couple of years.
