Wine Review: This pale straw colored Champagne with lots of tiny bubbles opens with a mild green apple bouquet with hints of gin. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild green apple with nicely integrated minerality and a hint of smoked almond toward the end. The finish is very dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. The panel suggested pairing this Champagne with swordfish kabobs, bacon wrapped scallops or oysters. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pale gold with green reflections, there is a dense flow of fine and delicate bubbles. The nose is sharp and very fresh, nuanced and structured, with aromas of bitter oranges and orange flower. First impressions on the palate are direct and gracious with many layers of peach, yellow-fleshed fruits, mirabelle and quince that contrast with an almost salty finish. Champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs 2004 is a great wine that should be drunk at 10° C with mushroom risotto.
