  • Tasting Notes

Description

The expressive nose exhibits plenty of floral character along with spicy red currant and plum scents. There is good freshness and a lovely sense of vitality to the rich and notably ripe medium-bodied flavors that retain good precision on the lingering finish. This should drink well in its youth if desired.

– Allen Meadows, Burghound

The 2012 Vosne-Romanee Clos d’Eugenie comes from the 0.57-hectare clos adjacent to the winery, sees 40% new wood (two new barrels out of a total five) and it includes 20% whole cluster. This is distinct from the regular Vosne-Romanee, that is for sure, with superior delineation and mineralite emanating from the glass with just two or three minutes aeration, but bestowed a similar fruit profile. The palate is very well structured with superb tension and poise. Again, it is very pure and focused, silky smooth in texture with heightened nervosite on the finish compared to the regular village cru. This is very fine.
