Maison Edouard Delaunay
Founded in 1893, Edouard Delaunay is an old house with a rich and unique history that contributed significantly to the expansion of Burgundy throughout the 20th century. Sold in 1993 and fell into oblivion, it was bought by the end of 2017 the great-grand-son of the founder, Laurent Delaunay, oenologist and wine entrepreneur, with the will to restore its place among the great names of Burgundy. From the 2017 vintage, Maison Edouard DELAUNAY offers a selection of around thirty cuvées centered on the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, ranging from regional appellations to Grands Crus, vinified and matured by him. Precise, subtle wines, all in balance and without excess which are aimed at the most demanding amateurs and enthusiasts worldwide.
