Nuits-Saint-Georges is particularly well known for its robust, full-bodied Pinot Noir that marries a beautiful minerality with an intense fruitiness.
The Edouard Delaunay Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes LE Village is no exception. Many wine lovers around the world agree that this offering from the winemaker is particularly delicious. It is bold, dry, and offers smooth, well-rounded tannins, showing maturity. It is slightly acidic but is offset by a slight sweetness that not only complements the acidity and dryness of the wine, but also enhances the beautiful minerality this wine is known for. To the eye: the wine promotes a beautiful ruby red, a little darker than the typical Pinot Noir is known for. On the nose: notes of cherry, forest fruits, and oak are observed. On the palate: the palate is smooth and intense. Strong notes of cherry, and red and dark berries are observed alongside delicious minerals, such as lead, smoke, and salt, as well as rich, rounded tannins. The finish is long and complex.
This wonderful wine pairs perfectly with red meats, but shines when paired with braised pork or beef.
