Philosophy The Bourgogne Côte d’Or appellation is a new appellation beginning with the 2017 vintage. It aims to offer the nobility of Burgundy’s regional appellations by using grapes that come exclusively from the finest terroirs in the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, a philosophy the House of Edouard Delaunay fully supports.
Terroir Our cuvée comes from a selection of Chardonnay grapes from the Côte de Beaune coming from plots located in the lower Meursault (60%) which bring fruit and depth, and in the Auxey-Duresses valley (40%) for freshness and minerality.
Vinfication and ageingHarvested by hand, the grapes are pressed immediately without destemming. The must is settled for 24 hours in vats then vinified entirely in oak barrels (20% new barrels) at low temperature for 1 to 3 months. The ensuing aging lasts 9 months, accompanied, on a case-by-case basis, by regular stirring. A vinification of Grand Vin blanc de Bourgogne.
Tasting notesBeautiful golden yellow color. Elegant nose of pastry (praline, hazelnut), complemented by pretty, slightly wild scents (fresh mushroom, wild rose, wild rose). Wine of great purity. The palate is superb, fresh, tense and broad. We perceive lemony aromas (yellow lemon, yuzu) which bring lovely refreshing bitterness. Some sweet nuances of beeswax and honey then emerge. Gourmet aroma of praline brioche followed by a delicately saline finish. This great white wine from Burgundy has remarkable length and density. Its exceptional structure gives it great ageing and development potential.
