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.
Tasting note: Here too a background application of oak is visible on the intensely earthy and beautifully complex nose of both red and blue pinot fruit, earth, violet and plum scents. There is good size, weight and power to the relatively supple mid-palate though the firm core of tannins is apparent on the moderately austere and impressively long finish. This is very Nuits in character but not unduly rustic or rough. Score: 90-92 Tasted: Jan 14, 2013 Drink: 2021+ Issue: 49 Allen Meadows; Burghound
