This House of Champagne was born in 1760 in Reims thanks to François Delamotte, the founder, and it was his son Alexandre who bought a house and cellars some time later in Mesnil-sur-Oger where Delamotte is still located.
The brand and the premises were then purchased in 1927 by Marie-Louise de Nonancourt, and it was her son, Charles, who ran it from 1948 to 1988.
Then the house was purchased in 1988 by Laurent-Perrier and was managed by Bernard de Nonancourt until 2010 when it was Alexandra and Stephanie de Nonancourt who took over to write the future of this House.
