ABV:

93-95/100
Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is limpid in appearance. The bouquet is very refined and offers the most fruit intensity of all d’Eugénie’s cuvées, a mixture of red and black fruit plus light touches of oyster shell and fish scales. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip on the entry. Quite a masculine and sturdy Clos de Vougeot, it will need 4–6 years to smooth its edges. But I appreciate the persistence on the aftertaste, residues of white pepper and clove lingering on the tongue. Excellent.

Domaine d'Eugenie

Domaine d'Eugenie

Domaine d'Eugenie was created when Francois Pinault of Chateau Latour bought the Rene Engel estate in Vosne-Romanee. The domaine comprises 6.5 hectares of incredibly well-placed, largely old vines in the Vosne villages, Vosne Romanee aux Brulees,Echezeaux, Grands Echezeaux and Clos du Vougeot appellations. Frederic Engerer, the successful president of Chateau Latour, will also manage production at this fine Burgundian domaine, aided by technical manager Michel Mallard. The philosophy here is to grow Pinot Noir with a respect for nature, keeping chemical treatments to a minimum, ploughing in between rows rather than applying herbicide, whilst leaf and crop thinning is carried out to ensure grapes reach full maturity. The wines undergo a cold maceration before alcoholic fermentation and gentle extraction of the skins, ageing then follows 12 months for the villages and 15 for the 1er and Grands Crus.
