Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits Les Saint Georges 2015

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The Gouges family makes their premier cru Vaucrains from a tiny one hectare with vines averaging about 50+ years of age. Vaucrains is situated in the heart of the Nuits St. Georges appellation just south of the town of Nuits itself. It sits above Les St Georges and Les Cailles vineyards, and its hallmarks are intensity and minerality. 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 Les Saint Georges took three or four minutes to unfold...but what a bouquet! Copious black cherry, cranberry jus, pomegranate and bergamot scents all infused with stupendous mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, plenty of blood orange infusing the red and black fruit, a keen line of acidity and a gentle grip towards the finish. It constitutes one of the best vintages that I have tasted in recent years. It should be considered a "stunning victory" for the 2015 vintage, but without wishing to sound like a broken record, please cellar this for 5-7 years for it to attain its drinking plateau.
