Vosne-Romanée’s 16-acre Domaine d’Eugénie was formed in 2006 after the death of Philippe Engel, owner of the highly regarded Domaine René Engel. The domaine was subsequently purchased by François Pinault, French billionaire and owner of Château Latour; however, Pinault purchased the vineyards but not the domaine’s cuverie. Instead, after christening it Domaine d’Eugénie, the new domaine functioned temporarily at Domaine Lupé-Cholet from 2006 through 2008 before settling into its own new space, the former Clos Frantin in Vosne-Romanée. The domaine works vineyards in Vosne-Romanée, Vougueot and Flagey-Echézeaux, and produces six wines from five appellations. The three grand cru are Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux and Clos de Vougeot, while the premier cru are Aux Brûlées and Vosne-RomanéeVillages. Inn 2009, the domaine became a champion of biodynamic farming methods, perhaps due to the efforts of the late Anne-Claude Leflaive.
