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.
33% whole bunch. Just 30 barriques, of which 10 new. Not a registered name; a commercial name. Lively and racy – very Vosne – with sweet undertow. Very charming and true. Some depth. Long. Jancis Robinson
