Tasting Notes

**Note: from a 1.37 ha parcel of 60+ year old vines situated close to the Château; vinified with 33% whole clusters**
This is also quite aromatically restrained with its compact and dense mélange of freshly turned earth, humus, spice and plum-scented nose. There is excellent ripeness displayed by the bold, concentrated and robust broad-shouldered flavors that really vibrate on the complex and equally long finish. I very much like the delivery as this is the epitome of power without weight but it's more refined than most examples of Clos de Vougeot though note well that refined does not mean less ageworthy as this too will need plenty of cellaring to arrive at its peak.

The softly reduced nose appears to be ripe and that impression is enhanced by the ripeness
displayed by the bold, concentrated and robust broad?shouldered flavors that really vibrate on the
complex and hugely long finish. I very much like the delivery as this is the epitome of power without
weight but it’s more refined than most examples though refined does not mean ageworthy as this will
need plenty of cellaring to arrive at its peak.

Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru from Domaine d'Eugenie certainly has one of the more sophisticated and nuanced aromatics among its peers: pure red fruit, mineral, neatly integrated oak, just a hint of rose petal emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, seductive core of red fruit. It is silky in texture and the acidity well judged with a caressing finish, although it begins to pall after a while and just feels as if it needs another trick up its sleeve. It starts really promising, up there with Etienne Grivot's Clos de Vougeot, but then does not follow through. That said, it is still a very commendable wine. Tasted September 2017.
