Another delicious wine from Edouard Delaunay hailing from the famous winemaking area of Côte de Beaune, the village of Meursault is the largest of the three villages that make up this wonderful region. The Edouard Delaunay Meursault Le Village is a Cuvee that comprises grapes from all three villages and created in Meursault. The result is an interesting, deep, and delicious wine.
The Edouard Delaunay Meursault Le Village is quite bold and offers a great deal to the bouquet and palate. It is quite dry with a playful sweetness offsetting the dryness and soft acidity of the wine. To the eye: a coy straw yellow greets the eye with a spattering of greens thrown in for good measure. On the nose: Notes of smoke, fruits, and pastry are most noticeable. On the palate: bold citrus notes and floral undertones are complemented by a rich creaminess reminiscent of pastry and nuts. Slight tones of oak enhance the medium-finish of this wine.
This wine works well as an aperitif and can be paired with fresh fish and shellfish. It works particularly well with scallops sauteed in butter and garlic.
