Domaine René Engel
I drank this wine with Clive Coates hours before a Romanee Conti/Leroy/Vogue tasting...much can be attributed to the grandeur of the vintage, but, Engel was something special. A very solid wine that is most likely starting to hit its prime.

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. Read More

There is a William Blake poem on the back label of Engel's Clos de Vougeot 2004, with the first line "Le Voilier qui passe". Does anyone know what poem this is in English?

Picked the grapes in 1976, we called it "les vindanges olimpique" Met Phillipe, who was a realy aimable wild guy, smoking hash like we al did. Just tday I learne of his demise, now already 5 years. It made me sad I intended (stil do) to go there and pick some grapes again, maybe with my son. What you want to know; best wine I ever tasted (and co...
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. Read More

1999 was an awesome vintage for red burgundy! This Vosne Romanée was definitely drunk too young but it always is something special to be able to drink some wine made by the late René Engel. Extremely powerful albeit a rather delicate pinot noir extraction. Beautiful vino! Read More
