60% whole bunch. Just six barriques. Not a registered name; a commercial name. Racked and in tank. Just beside the winery and walled.
Deep garnet. Sweet and fragrant in a floral sort of way. Masses of opulent fruit. Very burgundy but very ready! Very distinctive style with great freshness but already accessible. Long and vibrant. Jancis Robinson
Note: a monopole measuring .57 ha
The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Clos d’Eugenie includes 60% whole cluster fruit and three of the seven barrels are new. It has a very detailed bouquet that for me is a distinct level up from the village cru. The whole cluster contribution is barely tangible, merely lending freshness and another layer of complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with a pastille-like purity on the entry. There is good density and body here, perhaps the new oak speaking just a bit too loudly on the finish but otherwise well balanced, notwithstanding that the oak will be assimilated with time. It will deserve 3, maybe 4 years in bottle. Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate
