Edouard Delaunay Saint Romain (white)
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.
Located just to the west of Meursault, at a slightly higher altitude, the village of Saint-Romain produces affordable wines that express all of the characteristics of the great white wines of the Côte de Beaune, renowned for being the world’s most prized region for the production of Chardonnay.
Gorgeous pale yellow in colour with a fresh, bright nose redolent of pear, candied chestnut and fresh mint, opening up to scents of lemon, wild flowers (cowslip, dandelion, nettle) and pollen. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and expansive, boasting lovely maturity while remaining very fresh with flavours evocative of ripe grapes, sugared almonds and caramel. The finish leaves an impression of freshness and minerality, the hallmark of this terroir. This is a very pleasing, accessible wine that is at once ripe, fresh and elegant. Hints of beeswax and barley sugar surface on the finish.
