The Edouard Delaunay Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Les Crots is an interesting wine. It shows depth and character but also promotes softness and maturity with its tannins and acidity. It is a Pinot Noir and hails from the excellent appellation of Nuits-Saint-Georges.
The wine is medium-bodied, offering a medium intensity. It shows mature tannins and a soft acidity that perfectly complement the dryness of the wine. There is a slight sweetness that offsets the dryness, but not by much. To the eye: the wine delivers a beautiful and stunning deep ruby red that is a pleasure to view. On the nose: red fruits, such as stone fruit and cherry are observed paired with a slight sweetness and creaminess in the form of creme brulee and vanilla. On the palate: the wine is velvety smooth, more akin to silk than a beverage. It promotes notes of cherry, raspberry, and dark chocolate with salinity towards the end. It delivers a medium to long finish and shows complexity, character, and finesse.
The Edouard Delaunay Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Les Crots pairs perfectly with chicken and pork, especially if braised. It is refreshing and cleansing and should be enjoyed on a hot summer’s evening.
