Cote de Nuits is known around the world as one of the regions in France to produce some of the best Burgundy reds. The region itself is known for its Pinot Noir, but occasionally dabbles in the odd Chardonnay, which are just as excellent. The Edouard Delaunay Côte de Nuits-Villages Les Combes is produced with the grapes of 5 communes located in this wonderful region, producing a well-balanced, complex Pinot Noir.
The wine itself, in typical Pinot Noir fashion, leans towards the lighter end of the spectrum, offering a refreshing dryness that is accentuated by the well-rounded acidity. The tannins are smooth and mature, indicating professionalism and unrivaled know-how of the winemaker. To the eye: this wine offers a slightly darker red than the usual Pinot Noir, promoting a healthy purple in certain lights. On the nose: the bouquet is elegant and pleasing, offering notes of dark cherry, nuts, and delicious floral undertones. On the palate: the wine is light, refreshing, and well-balanced. There is a slight sweetness that coyly plays with the dryness, but not in an overpowering way. Notes of cherry, red fruits, and spices, such as cinnamon are observed, with delicious tobacco and oak notes to finish with the tannins. This wine offers a medium finish that is both pleasant and refreshing.
This wine is the perfect example of a good Côte de Nuits Pinot Noir. It is light and should be enjoyed on its own, or paired with light starters.
