Edouard Delaunay has created an epically delicious wine, thanks to the wonderful vineyards and winemakers in the Chassagne-Montrachet village in the famous Côte de Beaune. The result is a wine that is a wine that thinks its butter. It is something that surprises and creates an instant love affair for anyone that tastes it.
The Edouard Delaunay Chassagne-Montrachet Le Village is quite bold, rich, and ripe. It offers a nice acidity, and promotes a rather refreshing dryness. To the eye: the wine offers a delicious pale gold colour that is reminiscent of a fresh, crisp autumn afternoon in the countryside. To the nose: a strong bouque of butter is most noticeable undercut by a slight edge of citrus and oak. On the palate: the wine is rich, soft, and smooth - a tribute to the strong flavor of butter and the delicious lemon undertone. It offers a smooth medium finish with a nice oaky afterthought.
This wine works perfectly with light chicken and fish courses. It can be served with light pork dishes, as well. It is an excellent accompnamient for cheese courses and can be served as a rather refreshing aperitif.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
