    The 2020 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is raised with 70% whole bunch and around 80% new oak. Here, I feel that the stems are just jutting out a little more compared to the Grands Echézeaux and slightly obscures the terroir expression. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, fine backbone, perhaps without the same amplitude on the finish as either the Echézeaux or its "big brother". Still, this will give two or three decades of drinking pleasure.

    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.
