Domaine Rene Engel, Vosne Romanee Les Brulees 1999


Brulées lies on both sides of the road which leads up from Vosne to Concour in the Hautes Cotes. On the northern side it marches with Beaumonts and Echézeaux, and on the south it lies above Richebourg. The Engel domaine, now; after Engel's early death, called the Domaine d'Engenie, has its vines on both sides, and there is 1.05 hectares of it.

This is an excellent premier cru. Full, rich and with very expressive fruit. It is still youthful, and has a very lovely finish. Delicious! - Clive Coates MW    February 2020.

Rich and round, with lots of life. This has mocha flavors, with black fruits, lots of succulence and richness. Quite ripe and rich, with exotic spice notes.
