2002 Domaine René Engel Clos Vougeot

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

5/20/2015 - Nicholas81 wrote: 93 points

The wine opened with some sous bois and mushroom aromas. This soon blew off and sweet cherries and bright red fruits begin to emerge. the palate was extremely elegant with a svelte and velvety texture. The finish lasted pretty long. Totally ready for consumption.

Rustic at first but slowly reveals the sweetness and fruits. Need to let sweetness and elegant air out. This is beautiful. My 2nd engel but I am impressed.

I'm sorry I drank most of my bottles years ago. This wine was closed and hard for the longest time, but it is finally losing most of the dry tannins, which allows the Engel perfume and elegant fruit to come out.

Still red fruits in the bouquet. Same on the palate. Some earthy flavors, mild acidity and soft tannin. Very juicy wine and fully mature now.

Some recent 2002 Burgs: Bright, vivid red colour. Decanted 3-4 hours earlier. An attractive, spicy red-fruited nose. On palate, very pure and fairly primary with flavours of bright red berries and some subdued forest floor. There's tons of drive and power here and Grand Cru fruit weight with sleek, fine-grained tannins. Intense, rich and ripe. Returning to the bottle more than 24 hours later, the bouquet was moving towards the secondary with savoury, autumnal and underbrush nuances. The palate had similarly moved more mellow, older red plums, rather than raspberries, drinking beautifully, giving a glimpse of where it will be in 5-10 years.

The 2002 Engel Grands-Echezeaux is another bomb from the late, great Philippe Engel, bursting from the glass with lovely pure aromatics of wild berries, hedgerow fruit and subtle soil tones. The nose is not unlike Engel's 2002 Clos Vougeot, but on the palate the wine is even more intense, focused and firm at the core, with bright acids, crunchy fruit and beautifully ripe tannins, and it is here that the terroir differentiation is most apparent at this early stage. A terrific success. This is a long way from peak maturity, but the stunning quality is already apparent: what a legacy!

5/6/2015 - William Kelley wrote: NR

The 1996 Engel wines all have noticeable volatile acidity, and the domaine seems to have had an especially bad batch of corks in this vintage, so caveat emptor, but the wine opens up in the glass to reveal a nice nose of plums, spice, blood orange and leather, without every quite losing the rusty pipe bloodiness it showed on opening. On the palate the wine has considerable authority and volume, with nice bright acids, but it's ultimately disjointed. I found it really hard to get a read on this wine, and despite the vintage's good reputation I would go for almost any other if given the choice.

1993 Domaine René Engel Clos Vougeot

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

5/6/2015 - William Kelley Likes this wine: 97 points

The 1993 Engel Clos Vougeot is an extraordinary bottle of red Burgundy, with a stunning and pure bouquet of black cherry, wild plums, woodsmoke, violets and lovely soil tones. On the palate the wine is has a lovely core of tannin and acidity and is still five or six years away from the real prime time, with amazingly three-dimensional breadth and depth, and fine old vine intensity. Simply magical.

The 1999 Engel Clos Vougeot is a real stunner, with spectacular aromatics of ripe plum, black cherry, dark chocolate, truffle, woodsmoke and soil. On the palate this wine is very deep, rich and three-dimensional, with incredible concentration: a great wine, which is still a good five or six years away from its true peak, though the quality is already obvious.

The 2002 Engel Clos Vougeot is a real bomb, with a gorgeous bouquet of wild berries, even blueberries, and cool fruit tones that are the essence of Pinot Noir. The framing acids are lovely, and the crisp tannins are perfectly ripe. This is an exceptionally elegant wine, bursting with crunchy fruit and 'Pinosity'.

The 1998 Engel Clos Vougeot is marked by the difficult vintage, as there is a touch of volatile acidity on the nose and a touch of rather rustic tannin on the finish, especially as the wine sits in the glass, but it is still a very good Clos Vougeot, with an attractive bouquet of wild plums, blood orange and fennel seed, and ample volume and flavor on the palate.

The 1999 Engel Aux Brulées is really à point: a fleshy, joyous wine which bursts from the glass with aromas of red plums, Vosne spice and sous bois. There is lovely balance and breadth here, and what the wine lacks in focus and depth is amply compensated for by its generosity of spirit.

Beautiful and rustic bouquet with earth, violets and forest fruits. On the palate red fruits, a touch of sweetness balanced by fine acidity and soft tannin. A really fine wine. Ready now and a future of several years.

Classy, lovely mature & complex nose, with loads of juicy chicken broth, Vosne spices, very fine herbs mixed with red wild berries and ripe cherries.
Tell-tale Vosne, from top producer, fine vintage and top vineyard.
Palate shows mature ripe & sweet lovely red fruit, deep and velvety, with very good acidity, length, freshness and composition.
Very fine and in a sweet spot right now.
I’d love to come by a couple of bottles, as I really enjoyed this fine juice.

Melvyn's 50th Birthday Bash (Hua Ting, Orchard Hotel): Second flawed bottle. Corked. The nose stank of wet cardboard and iodine alongside notes of dark cherries, spice and earth. I think this would have been quite good if not for the TCA. The palate was similarly marked by a cardboardy over-layer, but beneath that, it felt full and complete, with still rather deep flavours of dark-fruited black cherries, blackberries and lots of smoky spice underscored by bright 1996 acidity. Finish was just a bit flat, petering out with some orange peel notes and a little trail of minerality. That may have just been the effect of the flaw though. Pity.

Medium red, with browning at the rim, and a touch of orange. Seemed fairly advanced in colour. Nose was beautiful. An aged Burgundy at its prime. Lovely soui bois, earth, mushrooms, touch of wood and spice, cinamon and plums, prunes and raisins. Very secondary actually, but charming. Good acidity on the palate, but this seemed to mask some of the flavours actually. Nose was definitely more pronounced. There were plums and raisins on the palate, with sandalwood, spice, tea leaves and earth. Enjoyable wine, but not one for the long haul.
