    • Philosophy Dear to the Delaunay's due to family ties, Meursault stands as a universal reference for Burgundy’s great Chardonnays. However, due to its varied terroirs and the growers’ different approaches, the style of Meursault wines differs significantly from one cuvée to another. A blend of grapes from several plots, Edouard Delaunay’s Meursault represents our own interpretation of the appellation: precise balance between opulence and maturity on the one hand, and freshness and elegance on the other.
    • Terroir Of the three Côte de Beaune villages that are world renowned for their great white wines, Meursault is the largest in surface area. Its calcareous clay terroir presents a variety of nuances depending on location. The grapes that go into this Meursault “village” cuvée were sourced from four plots scattered around the village. These multiple origins result in a final blend that is complex and highly representative of the Meursault appellation in its entirety.
    • Vinification and ageingThe grapes from each plot were vinified separately in order to preserve the typicity of each terroir. The grapes were pressed gently and the juices were allowed to settle, after which vinification was conducted entirely in barrels (including 20% new oak). Only a portion of the cuvée underwent malolactic fermentation. During the ageing period, regular and thorough stirring was performed to enrich the wine’s texture and lend subtle notes of brioche. Barrel ageing lasted 14 months.
    • Tasting notesGorgeous pale gold in colour. The light, airy nose features lovely ripe aromas and floral scents (spring flowers, daisy, crocus, narcissus) along with vegetal notes (almond, fresh hazelnut, hay). The full-bodied, ripe start to the palate is accompanied by pleasing freshness with flavours of lemon verbena, basil and spices (white pepper). Nice tautness develops and enhances the well-integrated oak. Then come fruity and subtle tangy notes (gooseberry, kumquat) along with a touch of vetiver. This grand, well-balanced wine allies freshness and ripeness.
