Edouard Delaunay

About the Producer

Region: Nuits-Saint-Georges

Founded in 1893, Delaunay is back in the ownership of fifth-generation Laurent Delaunay. The original négociant business, established by his great-great-grandfather Edouard, was one of the most prestigious names in Burgundy. They were the distributors of DRC and were exclusive for La Romanée until the 1940s. Laurent purchased the business back from Jean Claude Boisset in 2017 including the winery and cellars next to their beautiful family home Château de Charmont. Laurent and wife Catherine have access to some of the best vineyards in the Côte d’Or. Each cuvée is treated individually which allows the wines to offer a pure expression of each terroir. Quality is exceptional with consistent balance and focus across the range. We very enjoyed tasting the 2018s for the first-time last year but the 2019s, which show wonderful purity and complexity, are extraordinary.
