The Edouard Delaunay Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is a wonderful wine. It is created from the grapes of the Grand Cru in Clos de Vougeot and is a testament to sophistication and refinement. The wine is pure Pinot Noir and is allowed to age for 14 months in new oak barrels.
The Edouard Delaunay Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is medium bodied, with smooth, strong tannins, and a nice, refreshing dryness. The acidity is cleansing and delicious. To the eye: the wine boasts a beautiful deep red. On the nose: deep, intricate notes of black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry intermingle with subtle, woody tones, reminiscent of hazelnut. On the palate: delicious fruits (as above) complemented by a wonderful herbaceousness and minerality that is both intriguing and refreshing. It promotes a complex, medium-finish allowing the drinker to fully savor the character of the wine.
This interesting Pinot Noir pairs perfectly with veal - braised or grilled. The subtle notes of the meat are perfectly complemented by the mature, rounded tannins and acidity of the wine itself.
