Domaine d'Eugenie was established in 2006 by Francois Pinault, who owns Chateau Latour in Bordeaux, and named the domaine after his grandmother. He aimed to create a top Burgundy domaine and hence decided to acquire vineyards from René Engel - one of the leading lights of Vosne-Romanée until the death of Philippe Engel in 2005 - and the Frantin Estate from Bichot in Nuits-St-Georges to produce the wines. The village vineyard Clos Frantin was included in the deal with Bichot and renamed to Clos d'Eugenie when they released the 2009 vintage. Under the management of President of Chateau Latour Frederic Engerer and oenologist Michel Mallard, the recent wines of Eugénie are well-made with good purity and their style is improving from year to year.
We have a small parcel of Domaine d’Eugenie’s Vosne-Romanee Clos d’Eugenie 2017, a monopole with only 0.57 ha which produces 1,000 to 2,000 bottles depending on the quality of each vintage. It is a fantastic and unique terroir which neighbours La Tache Grand Cru, the first vintage was created in 2009 and qualities are guaranteed. With the limited production, it is very difficult to get in the market so please don’t miss the chance to secure this now -

Here the expressive nose is at once spicier and a bit more elegant as well with its array of more evident floral influence on the black cherry aromas that are trimmed in a discreet application of wood. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess a velvety texture thanks to the sappy dry extract that also serves to buffer the moderately firm tannic spine shaping the delicious and lingering finish that is slightly firmer. This will need at least a few years of cellaring first and should easily reward up to a decade.
