Over the hills and far away to the Haut Cotes…. And a kaleidoscopic tasting with Laurent Delaunay at the family’s beautiful Chateau de Charmont. 28 wines tried – from Bourgogne Aligoté (absolutely outstanding – who needs Chardonnay?!?) right through to Echezeaux and Clos Vougeot, with many highlights across appellations and crus. The choice of parcels, and pragmatic approach – where every cuvée is treated individually without a set formula for quantity of new oak, or amount of whole bunches used etc, allows each wine to offer a true and deeply satisfying expression of the terroirs. Whilst the strength in Nuits Saint Georges is especially noticeable, there are some absolute gems throughout – and the consistent balance of succulence and focus, sweetness and salinity, authenticity and sophistication shows that there are great things ahead for Maison Delaunay. Watch out for Laurent picking some of his top under the radar wines for us and elsewhere explaining why we should embrace his passion for Nuits Saint Georges…

What the critics say:

92-95/100Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

"4 barrels of which one is from Mazoyères-Chambertin. Two of the barrels are new, and all the fruit has been destemmed. Extremely deep powerful purple. The nose is quite backward but suggests power. A little bit raisiny perhaps towards the back and with some liquorice into the bargain, not a fresh strawberry and cream style. Plenty of weight and finishes well. Tasted: October 2020"
