<10 tasting notes
The domaine owns a splendidly sited 1.37 hectare chunk of Clos de Vougeot, behind and just down slope of the château itself. It also has Echézeaux and Grands Echézeaux, and in the days of Philippe Engel – who sadly died in 1995, since when the estate was sold to Francois Pinault of Château Latour and renamed Domaine d'Eugenie – you were offered the Clos de Vougeot to taste before the Grands Echézeaux. This being the order - or the reverse of the order – of preference.
This is a splendid wine; only just ready. The vigour and the grip mark this out as a stayer. It is fullish, gently oaky, succulent, rich and harmonious. And above all very classy. Many Clos de Vougeots lack a little class and definition. They have a pleasant warm spice which is most enjoyable. But that's it. This is class above.
