Laurent set about to catapult these wines into the stratosphere and after sweeping up at the IWC 2020 awards for their incredible 2019s, one could argue, they may have reached space itself! They were in fact the biggest winner at the awards, picking up 8 trophies, Red Winemaker of the Year (for the wonderful Christophe Briotet), as well as 15 gold, 30 silver and 7 bronze medals. Safe to say, club members lapped up last year’s allocations and the staff too have been enjoying Laurent’s wines throughout the year. It is with great pleasure therefore that I can offer these brilliant wines. Best vintage yet? We certainly wouldn’t bet against it…


Every cuvée is treated individually, without a set formula for quantity of new oak, or amount of whole bunches used, which allows each wine to offer a true and deeply satisfying expression of the individual terroirs and vintage. What we have is absolutely everything we love about Burgundy. A real sense of place.

"The heart of Maison Delaunay belongs in Nuits – they are offering an increasing number of crus to show off the appellation – once again the village wine confidently sets out there stall. The style of wines from the northern and southern vineyards are quite different and this wine is from three sites – one from north and two from south. 60% of the cuvée is from a lieu dit nestled just underneath ‘Les Saint Georges’ – the village’s most illustrious premier Cru, with a little clay but lost of stones. (and long viewed by many as deserving of Grand Cru status).

An attractive mix of red, black and blue fruits, crushed stones and touch of anise.

On the palate tight berry and cherry fruit shows good precision and there is welcome acidity, and well-structured tannins as well as spice, earth and salt in the mix. Accomplished winemaking here that shows Nuits Saint Georges is more than capable of the sophistication and elan of its chi-chi neighbours."
Tom Harrow, Wine Guru

"Mostly from Les Longecourts, just south of the town. There is also one barrel of 1er cru included. Medium purple, with a pleasingly fresh bouquet, not cooked at all. Very well balanced, light on its feet but recognisably Nuits-St-Georges". Tasted: December 2021 90-92, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
