Domaine René Engel Vosne-Romanée Rouge Vosne-Romanée Bourgogne-Bouteille 2004
"This 2004 Vosne RomanÃ©e was the last vintage made by Philippe Engel beforehis untimely death at the age of 49, after which the domaine was sold. He had amarvellously deft touch as a vigneron, making delicately scented red wines witha core of sensual fruit, avoiding aggressive tannins or too much oak influence.This wine is now delicious to drink, with the gentle, complex flavours ofmaturing pinot mixing in with the red fruit fragrance of youth. Try withlighter game birds such as partridge, or a shoulder of lamb with garlic androsemary, but avoid powerful sauces." (Jasper Morris MW, BBR Buyer)<br/><br/>
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Tobacco and crushed leaves accompany forest fruits and mushroom and lead to a long finish. Compact and palate-coating, the fine tannin and bouyant acidity keep this muscular and weighty wine bright.
A nice Pinot Noir but wouldn't say a fantastic one. I'm fussy with my Pinot's and this one seemed rather warm and thin, slightly raspberry like but a real sharpness to it that took away the enjoyment slightly. Maybe overpriced in my book.
popped and poured. intense, high toned nose of black cherries and hints of grilled meat. Super inner mouth perfume carries rich black fruits and earth- round throughout- a touch of dryness at the end, but overall a terrific wine.

A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2004 Domaine Rene Engel Grands Echezeaux 750ml
Dense and backward now, this exhibits red cherry, black currant, mineral and spice aromas and flavors. It's very tightly wound, yet all the elements--bright acidity, firm, ripe tannins and concentrated fruit--are in the right proportions. Don't touch... Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2002 Domaine Rene Engel Clos de Vougeot 750ml
