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.
The wood treatment is a bit more evident than with any of the prior wines but not so much as to diminish the appeal of the earthier and cooler aromas of violet, plum and full-on sauvage notes.

Note that while this will certainly age, it's sufficiently round to make for reasonably good early drinking. Tasted: Jun 2019; Drink: 2027+; Issue: 73; Rating 90-92; Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
