Domaine Rene Engel was one of the leading lights of Vosne- Romanee until the tragically early death of Philippe Engel, grandson of the founder, in 2005. Philippe had been in charge since 1981 and by the early 1990s had established his reputation for making exceptionally delicious wines. He had a light hand with extraction, preferring to emphasise the natural qualities of the fruit, supported by the judicious use of new oak- rarely more than 50% except for the gran crus and exceptional vintages. the Domaine was sold to Francois Pinault (of Chateau Latour fame) and is know known as Domaine Eugenie. Domaine René Engel was purchased and renamed Domaine Eugenie in 2006.
