Goedhuis, November 2017
From a parcel situated near the Château. This has a superb aromatic intensity, with violets and floral tones. The palate is gourmand and complex with some rich undertones. With silky tannins and a svelte length.

Interestingly the beautifully layered nose is even more floral though less spicy with its gorgeously fresh dark berries and newly turned earth scents. The sleek, intense and muscular flavors possess equally impressive size, weight and power though the hugely long and youthfully austere finish is arguably even longer. Textbook. Don't miss!

Deep red with ruby tones. Aromas of black cherry and licorice complicated by smoky minerality. The plushest and sweetest of this set of 2016s, but also with lovely energy and mineral lift to its flavors of black cherry and violet. Finishes dusty and very long, with an obvious element of wood tannins but no dryness. Boasts a terrific combination of density and precision. And as with the estate's Grands-Echézeaux, this wine has not been knocked off balance by the tiny crop level.
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.
