2010 Clos Vougeot Domaine Eugenie



This is a big scoring, but under the radar wine from one of the top red Burgundy vintages of all time. Eugenie are a relatively new operation, but in the short time that they have been going have already caught the eye of top Burgundy critic Allen Meadows who urges his readers to track them down: “they are elegant and pure expressions of each of the vineyards with refined supporting tannins and excellent overall quality… if you haven't yet tried an example from this new domaine, I would highly recommend them.”

 

Domaine Eugenie’s plot is situated in just about the best site of this Grand Cru Appellation, the top left-hand corner and filled with old, low-yielding and high quality vines. The plot used to be owned by the old Engel Estate and is now owned by Francois Pinault (of Chateau Latour and Chateau Grillet), who has been instrumental in the Domaine’s swift renaissance.

Discreet wood sets off the ripe, dense and quite elegant black cherry aromas that are layered with notes of earth and floral nuances. This is also impressively complex with wonderfully rich, intense and well-structured big-bodied flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract on the mouth coating, balanced, long and extremely serious finish. One difference between this and many youthful examples of the appellation is that there is almost no austerity present on the vibrant backend though that may change as the baby fat melts away. This too is absolutely terrific though note that plenty of patience will be required. January 2013. www.burghound.com Drink 2027+
