'It is always a pleasure to meet with Gregory Gouges who is thoughtfully spoken and has kept the domaine's sense of tradition intact, but the wines are both more precise and more approachable these days. He said that 'in 2013 we maintained the organic viticulture and everything was destemmed.' Though one or two barrel samples were not in a fit state for assessment, generally these 2013s continue the good work that is going on at the domaine. The best terroirs showed exactly why they have earned their status, with strong showings for the Les Pruliers and Les Saint Georges. What I liked here was the tension and poise, the sheer pinoté of these wines that prioritized elegance over power.'  Neal Martin Wine Advocate

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers felt a little reduced on the nose -- though that is common with infant Gouges. At the moment it compromises the wine's definition, which is a pity as there is attractive red cherry and redcurrant fruit waiting to surface. That will be addressed with bottle age. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, some chewiness that will dissipate with time and good depth. It feels a little chunky and uncouth towards the finish although it does improve and gain more cohesion in the glass. Time should meliorate this wine, so afford it 3-4 years in bottle. Tasted September 2016.
