Founded in 1893, the house of Delaunay became a prestigious and prolific estate and was one of the sole distributors of DRC and exclusively of La Romanée until the 1940s. Sold to Jean Claude Boisset in the 1990s, the maison was reborn in 2017 when winemaker and fifth generation, Laurent Delaunay, purchased back the name, and winery and cellars next to the family home Chateau de Chaumont. Laurent and wife Catherine have accessed some excellent vineyard sites across the Cote d’Or, including a gem in Petit-Vougeots, and right up to Griottes-Chambertin, recently presenting their 2017s in November to great acclaim. 2018 will be the first vintage to be offered en primeur from the self-proclaimed “most atypical of the fine wine houses of Burgundy” and Honest Grapes is delighted to be amongst a select handful of merchants to partner with the maison to do so.

From the limestone-rich, northern part of the Clos between the chateau itself and the most prestigious parcel owned by Chateau de la Tour. Sweet and rich, spicy aromas of cherry tobacco crumbled over strawberry jam tarts straight from the oven. Slightly hot nose initially but then ripe red cherry fruit unfurls to assail the nostrils. Palate is broad and mouthfilling, with some chewy, rich tannins, this has powerful structure and good mid-palate weight. Will develop well. Tom, Wine Guru

From one plot with 30% whole bunch vinification and 60% new wood, this will not be in bottle before March or even May. Dense mid purple, lots of energy to the nose. This is a very good example of the appellation, with depth but without rusticity, plenty of fruit especially at the front, and an attractive finish with well ripened tannins. 93-96/100, Jasper Morris MW
