Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir.
Tasting notes: The colour is of medium intensity. The nose is open and boasts aromas of liquorice that are typical for Nuits-Saint-Georges. Fruity notes on the palate (fruit coulis, cherrystone) with perfect maturity underscored by a touch of acidity and tannins that are typical of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The finish is almost saline, stony.
Expert Rating: Decanter 92/100
"So much perfume and nuance here, amazingly aromatic on the nose with bright cherry notes given depth by wood spice and burnt ora."
About the winery: The Delaunay story is absolutely unique!
25 years earlier, the Delaunay family sold the family premium wine estate. A couple of years ago, Laurent Delaunay, the 5th generation of a family of winemakers and négociants, is re-appropriating his family’s history!
After a few years of intense work at the cellar by Laurent, we can tell : Delaunay is back on the very front of the scene with nicest appellations, superb juices.
The Revival of the House
The revival of the House of Edouard Delaunay began three years ago when Laurent, great grandson of the founder, bought back the winery, brand and cellar and added them to Chateau de Charmont, in the Hautes Cotes de Nuits, purchased in 2007.
His ambition has been to return it to its former glory and make Edouard Delaunay a leading Burgundian wine house once more. He has done that, and then some!
Purity and precision are the two keywords for us. My philosophy is really: listening, reading the terroir and the vines’ condition, trying to understand, and gently accompanying the natural evolution of the wine.
