The Henri GOUGES domain was established in Nuits Saint Georges at the very beginning of this century. Founded by Henri Gouges, it was subsequently developed by his two sons, Michel and Marcel. Today it is Pierre, Christian and their successor, Grégor. For nearly eighty years, the soil has soaked up the sweat of these enthusiasts on the fifteen hectares that make up the family domain. Over three generations, the Henri Gouges domain has had the honour of appearing on many of the most respected tables in France and across the world.

Here too there is enough reduction to render an evaluation of the nose difficult. There is outstanding volume and density to the almost painfully intense middle weight flavors that exhibit notably better minerality on the generously proportioned, powerful and exceptionally long finish. This provides an interesting contrast in textures as the mid-palate is supple thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins yet the linear finish is robust to the point of rusticity. Note too that despite the fine grain of the tannins they are dense and firm so patience will be required.
