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 nae of Domaine Eugenie.

Serving and Decanting Domaine Eugenie with Wine, Food Pairing Tips

Domaine Eugenie is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. Young vintages can be popped and poured, or decanted for an hour so. 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 best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, stewed dishes, sausage and cassoulet. Domaine Eugenie is also good with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms pasta, eggplant and tomatoes.
