Neal Martin, December 2014,
The 2013 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru appears to offer slightly more complexity on the nose with blackberry, briary, damp moss and sea-spray aromas (indeed, the marine influence here is stronger than on the Echézeaux.) The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins. There is a sense of femininity here, while the Echézeaux is distinctly more masculine. It is silky and approachable toward the finish but endowed with greater length. Drink: 2017 - 2035
Burghound, January 2015,
(from a .50 ha parcel with vines that range from 20 to 60 years of age with the average being about 25 years old; vinified with 33% whole clusters). Reduction. This is bigger and richer still with ample power to the very rich, intense and muscular broad-shouldered flavors that also brim with dry extract that coats the palate on the strikingly persistent, balanced and beautifully complex finish. This is a big but not massive Grands Ech though it is very firmly structured and thus plenty of patience will be required. Drink 2028+
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. Much more compact and homogenous than the neighbouring Echezeaux, the Grands Echézeaux vineyards are owned by around twenty producers - very modest in Burgundian terms. The most celebrated producers include Domaines de la Romanee Conti, d'Eugenie and Mongeard-Mugneret. These fine wines are richly complex yet balanced and have enormous ageing potential.
