This is extremely high quality, with a savoury attitude, and long balanced finish. With greater length and aromatic intensity than the Echezeaux, it is also narrower in the palate, with a long, fresh finish.

There is an interesting hint of mandarin orange to the notably ripe but equally restrained aromas of black cherry, rose petal, cassis and a wide range of spice elements. Like the Ech this is a big, muscular and concentrated effort with excellent size, weight and punch to the broad-shouldered flavors that culminate in a palate coating, serious and strikingly long finish. This is even more firmly structured and at least moderate patience will be necessary. Drink: 2031+

Bright dark red. Pure but reticent aromas of dark cherry, brown spices and minerals. Juicy and intense but youthfully imploded, showing terrific lift and a sexy hint of sweetness to its flavors of dark fruits, spices and saline minerals. Denser than the Echézeaux but also less austere; at once more airy and more sensual. The explosive rising finish features tactile, dusty saline minerality and terrific grip.
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.
