    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine Henri Gouges, Nuits St Georges, 2020

    Juicy but powerful, this offers some good, fresh, crunchy red and dark berry fruit encased in solid tannic framework. Robust, sinewy Nuits. This is normally from eight plots across the Nuits commune with the South side of Nuits having the most influence on the blend.

    Neal Martin, Vinous
    Racked three week before my visit and due for bottling in December, the 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Village has a lot of intensity on the nose with black cherries, creme de cassis and violet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp acidity, slightly brittle in texture towards the finish. Maybe just a little confit for my taste?

    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.
