    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine d'Eugenie, Vosne Romanée, 2014
    ABV:
    12.5%
    90/100
    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
    (from a crop level of 31 hectoliters per hectare and vinified with one-third whole clusters): Bright medium red. Darker and riper on the nose than the basic village bottling, showing good lift to its aromas of black cherry, dark berries, licorice and violet. This juicy, dry, rather elegantly styled wine offers an attractive balance of berry intensity and saline minerality. Finishes with suave tannins and very good subtle length. No shortage of volume in this excellent village bottling.

    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.
