Domaine Eugenie does not have a long history in the Southern Rhone Valley. In fact, the estate only dates back to 2008, when the domaine was founded by Florence Bouche Bley.
The vineyard takes its name from her daughter Eugenie. Florence Bouche Bley is the third generation of females in her family to manage the property. However, prior to 2010, the family sold all of their their harvest to local negociants in the Southern Rhone Valley.
That all changed with the 2010 vintage after their contracts expired and they soon began to produce, bottle and sell their own wine under the name of Domaine Eugenie.

When to Drink Domaine Eugenie, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time
Domaine Eugenie can be enjoyed on the young side. Young vintages can be popped and poured, or decanted for about 1 hour, give or take. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.
Domaine Eugenie is usually better with 2-4 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages the wine should be consumed within 3-8 years after the vintage.
