Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

A 3.7-hectare Monopole of Domaine Gouges, always one of the more classic muscular style Nuits of the region, this may have some brawn to it but there is plenty of complementary ripe crushed, sweet fruit flavours, touches of violet, bramble and cherry, sweet Asian spice, liquorice and more grounded flavours of earth, undergrowth and mineral. Dense, powerful but extremely well balanced.

Notes
The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Clos des Porrets St. Georges comes across as silky, perfumed and quite pretty in this vintage. There is an early approachability to the wine that makes it an excellent choice for drinking over the near and mid-term. Gregoire Gouges told me he didn't think the wine would shut down in bottle as that would already be obvious already if it was happening. He added that the 2005 closed down right after bottling. Crushed flowers, licorice and spices are some of the notes that linger on the finish.

Domaine Henri Gouges

Domaine Henri Gouges

Henri Gouges started Domaine-bottling in the 1920s and as such are one of Burgundy's pioneering estates. Henri's grandsons Pierre and Christian have been looking after production for the last two decades and have been responible for carving out the Domaine's great reputation for uniquely muscular, long-lived Burgundies. As from the 2007 vintage Gregory, Christian's nephew, who has been working at the Domaine since 2003, is making the wines and has made an immediate impact. His aim is for less extraction in the wines through a collection of numerous small details in the winemaking process, including more use of gravity in the cellars and less pumping of the wines. His changes are not totally wholesale, though, and he still clearly sticks to the Domaine's reserved, traditional approach to making wine. Stems are not included in fermentation but use of new oak is fairly limited. The resultant wines are pure, high-toned, certainly not flashy, and powerful but not unwieldy, they give immense pleasure. An exciting new dawn for a benchmark Burgundian Domaine.
