Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits Saint Georges Clos des Porrets St. Georges 2015


SKU 02342


Established in Nuits Saint Georges at the beginning of the 1900's, today it is Henri Gouge's two grandsons, Pierre and Christian, who manage the estate. Pierre tends the vineyards with sustainable practices and maintains low yields, while Christian vinifies the wines by blending traditional and modern practices. A gentle use of new oak (never exceeding 20%) keeps the wines balanced and expressive of their rich fruit character.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets Saint Georges has a tightly wound, floral bouquet - hints of violet, strawberry jam, even a light smear of marmalade coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and is complex: a mixture or red and black fruit seamlessly knitted together, leading to a concentrated but structured, classically-styled finish with fine salinity. This comes highly recommended, a pure and crystalline Nuits St Georges from one of its best vineyards. It comes highly recommended.

BurghoundFirm reduction makes this hard to assess though the underlying fruit does seem ripe. There is outstanding volume and mid-palate concentration to the powerful and mouth coating middle weight flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the sappy, dusty, complex and beautifully persistent finish. This is a classic Nuits that is built-to-age and will need it. Rated 91-93
