Goedhuis, November 2017
Just four barrels were made, 50% new oak. This has a deep black fruit aroma that carries its smoky oak well. The refreshing palate is pepped up by distinct salinity.

The whole cluster vinification is more evident here with its intense floral and spice nuances that add breadth to the pretty dark pinot fruit scents that are trimmed in discreet wood hints. The more mineral-inflected and detailed medium weight flavors possess a really lovely mouthfeel before terminating in a beautifully persistent finale. This is also very Vosne in style but it will need at least a few years of cellaring first. Outstanding. Drink: 2026+

Bright, dark red. Reduced nose dominated by flinty minerality. A pungent, energetic midweight with excellent inner-mouth tension to its flavors of wild strawberry and saline minerality. Some unabsorbed CO2 currently accentuates the impression of sappiness. This very firmly built wine finishes ripe but dry, with sneaky mounting length. The estate is beginning to replant vines in all of its vineyards and will need to drill into the rock under the shallow layer of topsoil in this site.
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.
The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
