Edouard Delaunay Vougeot 1er Cru 'les Petits Vougeots'
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.
Niched beneath the Musigny plots, between Clos-de-Vougeot and “Les Amoureuses” (no less!), the Vougeot Premier Cru vines represent by far the smallest surface area of Premier Cru vines in the entire Côte de Nuits (11.68 ha). They are therefore extremely rare and difficult to find.Lovely red colour. Highly complex nose boasting great finesse, it is both fruity and floral (red berries, rose, wild strawberry), followed by spicier notes (gingerbread) and a hint of Russian leather. Soft, harmonious and velvety on the palate. The fruit is complemented by warmer flavours of chocolate truffle and a touch of sucrosity (caramel, pastries), enhanced by a hint of liquorice. This is a very pleasing wine; both supple and fresh, subtle and delicate. Tasting it is like eating a candy.
