“Frederic Engerer and Michel Mallard maintain the traditions while reducing the yields and meticulously looking after the vineyards.”
The soils in Côte de Nuits result on the consequences of the uplift of the Alps and the collapse of the plain of the Saône. The vines are mainly planted on limestone slopes. At the summit sits the famous "stone of premeaux", giving Romanée-Conti, Richeboug, and La Tâche outstanding wines. The soils are formed of calcareous scree, limestone, and red silt with a large diversity of terroir contributing to the typicality of the Côte de Nuits wines.
History / Ethos
Domaine d’Eugenie in Vosne-Romanée is the reincarnation of iconic Domaine René Engel. In 2006, François Pinault bought the Domaine and started a process to modernise the cellar. The estate comprises 6,5 hectares of largely old vines (Pinot Noir) in some of the best sites near Vosne-Romanée, including the Clos D’Eugénie Monopole. Frédéric Engel, from Château Labour is now in charge of this Burgundian estate, with Michel Mallard as a winemaker. Domaine D’Eugnie is now certified Organic, with some Biodynamic practices throughout the vineyard.
