NV Delamotte Brut, AC Champagne
Champagne all day, Champagne all night . . . that would be paradise. It's harder and harder to justify buying nonvintage Champagne - it's just getting too expensive. Too damn expensive for what it offers - a well-made, but often boring wine. Something who's one and only goal is to remain constant has its place, but is not worth paying $40+ for. And so we find ourselves drinking Delamotte.
As indicated in the Champagne and Soufflé video, we drank Delamotte. A useful, simple wine, but worth the $48 they charged? Hardly.
