The Trilogy

 

THE DOMAINE

Domaine René Engel is widely acclaimed by seasoned amateurs and wine specialists and is regarded by many as one of the top Burgundian domaines.

Founded by René Engel in 1919, the Domaine is located in Vosne-Romanée at the very heart of the Bourgogne viticole.

Between 1919 and 2004, three men – René, Pierre and Philippe – succeeded each other, from father to son, to run the family’s vineyard, including some of the most prestigious Burgundian crus.

The Sale

June 16th 2019, Hôtel Beau-Rivage, Geneva

This historic sale held by Baghera/wines was an unique opportunity to acquire the very last bottles from the Domaine and to pay an ultimate tribute to René, Pierre and Philippe Engel, a trilogy of pioneers and passionate winemakers, who each left their mark on Burgundy’s fine wines’ history.
