Neal Martin, December 2016,
The 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru was demonstrating a pleasant, subtle reduction like the Les Brûlées that after racking will disappear by the time of bottling. I like the delineation and clarity here, perhaps more than the Les Brûlées. There is a spark - an edge, so to say. The palate is medium-bodied, a mixture of red and black fruit, crisp and well balanced with a slightly savory, dried blood finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a well-made Echézeaux, one of the best I have tasted from the domaine in recent years. Drink Date 2019 - 2032

A moderately toasty nose reveals notes of essence of black cherry, violet, sandalwood and Asian-style tea. The sleek, intense and rich middle weight plus flavors possess excellent volume before terminating in a velvety, sappy and notably firm finish that is sneaky long. This vibrant effort should amply reward 12 to 15 years of bottle age yet be approachable after only 5 to 7. Drink 2027+
Domaine d'Eugénie was born following the acquisition of René Engel estate by François Pinault, alsoowner of Château Latour in Pauillac during the summer 2006. The estate is situated in Vosne-Romanée, in the heart of La Côte de Nuits between Nuits-Saint-Georges and Gevrey Chambertin. This village is considered to be the treasure of big wines of Burgundy. The vineyard is about 6.5 hectares and extends onto the communes of Vosne-Romanée, Vougeot et Flagey-Echezeaux. The estate is managed by Frédéric Engerer who is the President at Château Latour in Pauillac.
One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
