Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

A Nuits of both stature and finesse. Long, precise, bursting with fruit and intensely mineral, exhibiting beautiful flavours of Autumn fruit, sweet berry, earth, herb and spice with shimmers of rock salt. A parcel of 50-year-old vines close to Clos des Porrets that, like its neighbour, also produces classic powerful Nuits but perhaps with greater finesse and more mineral characteristics.

Notes
The 2010 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru is more intense on the nose compared to the 2009; also earthier and perhaps without the same comely charm. There is just a touch of greenness here, pleasant and not detrimental, yet you cannot ignore it completely. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and finely judged acidity. This exudes finesse and poise, gaining more depth towards the finish with a potent mineral note that defines that aftertaste. It needs three or four more years in bottle but it will be worth the wait. Tasted at the Gouges retrospective at La Cabotte.

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.
