Domaine René Engel

A historic estate that came to a tragically abrupt end, Domaine Rene Engel produced some of the finest wines of Vosne-Romanée before the untimely death of Philippe Engel in 2005. Philippe was the grandson of the domaine’s founder and took the reins after his own father’s early passing in 1981, and continued to take his grandfather's advice throughout his tenure- though occasionally the eldest Engel had to be banned from the cellar due to his overly intrusive interventions. Philippe built a name for the domaine as a producer of balanced, elegant wine, employing moderation in all facets of winemaking from extraction to oak treatment. Unfortunately, upon his death, there was no one in the family able to take over management of the property, and it was sold to Francois Pinault, owner of Chateau Latour. The property has been renamed Domaine d'Eugenie, and bottles bearing the Rene Engel label are now highly coveted by collectors.
