Champagne Delamotte & Salon à Mesnil Sur Oger

We are very pleased to share the latest updates and wonderful ratings about Salon 2006 and Delamotte 2007, on the very famous Jancis Robinson's review :

Champagne Salon 2006 : 

There are certain provisos, of course: Salon 2006 has only recently been disgorged and will certainly improve in bottle. In particular, the nose seemed underdeveloped and needs years to unfurl. Furthermore, while both Salon 2006 and Delamotte Blanc de Blancs 2007 are fantastic, there is no question that the former is the better wine; it's just that those fractions of extra quality come at a significant price. 18++/20”


Champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Brut : 

Aged 48 months on lees. Contains the raw material that would have been used for Salon between 2008 and 2011. Mealy, light, quite faint fruit on the nose at the moment, but there is a purity to it which is very attractive. On the finish, the yeasty character is excellent, and there is a lovely sea-salt note to finish. The nose is bound to open up in due course. 17+/20


Champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Brut 2007 : 

Champagne Disgorged 2016. Suppressed nose, but the palate has a marvellous sourdough character with baked apple and orange peel fruit. Chewy texture. Exquisite – so lifted and floaty. Weightless, yet layer upon layer of feathered flavour. (RH)Drink 2016-2026. 17,5/20

Pala Stellato, Tre Bicchieri 2018

Dear Friends,

We’re proud to announce that for the third consecutive year Stellato Vermentino has been awarded with the Tre Bicchieri from the Gambero Rosso, the most important award for an Italian wine. Even more, three years ago Stellato was the first vermentino ever in the south of Sardinia to receive that award … is still the only one. (for your information there are two others Vermentino di Gallura, north east that got the Tre Bicchieri, for a total of three vermentinos, including Stellato in all Sardinia.)


the award ceremony and tasting will take place in Rome on October 22nd


Patrick Carteyron, ambassadeur de l'Entre-deux-Mers

Laurent Theillet Le viticulteur accumule les récompenses, exporte beaucoup et écume les Salons avec d'autres vignerons.

Dans le caveau de dégustation, quelques rares récompenses sont accrochées au mur. Où sont les autres ? « Classées, il y en aurait trop », éclate de rire Patrick Carteyron : « Je ne les mets jamais sur les bouteilles. Ce qui compte, c'est le bruit global autour de votre vin. » Dans l'Entre-deux-Mers, le plus vaste vignoble du Bordelais, il y a plus souvent des histoires de propriétés qui vivotent que de success-stories. Propriétaire de 42 hectares autour de Génissac, à quelques kilomètres de Libourne, Patrick Carteyron collectionne les distinctions, fait référence dans le milieu et exporte 70 % de sa production.
