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

(production here was 30 hectoliters per hectare, which winemaker Michel Mallard describes as "the closest to normal" in 2016; this wine and the following cuvées were vinified with 60% whole clusters): Bright medium-dark red. Aromas of black cherry and licorice are lifted by a suave floral element. Juicy, spicy and intense, with a positive hint of greenness energizing the dark fruit and mineral flavors. A step up in punch from the basic Vosne villages, this sappy midweight finishes with excellent length and lift.
