- Tasting Notes
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, this too has just enough reduction to reduce the expressiveness and freshness of the otherwise layered nose that is even more floral though less spicy with its dark berries and newly turned earth scents. The sleek, intense and muscular flavors possess equally impressive size, weight and power though the hugely long and youthfully austere finish is arguably even longer. This is a really impressive wine that I believe merits receiving the benefit of the doubt.

The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is the standout wine for Domaine d’Eugenie this year. It was cropped at 16 hectoliters per hectare (compared to 38 hectoliters per hectare in 2017). It easily is blessed with the finest aromatics from the domaine: red and black fruit, fine mineralité with just a hint of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit, a fine bead of acidityreal personality here, with a very pure and tensile finish that lingers in the mouth. I like the way it just keeps rolling across the senses. This is extremely sophisticated and full of breeding.
