Domaine Henri Gouges 2017 Clos de Porrets 1er Cru, Nuits-St-Georges, Burgundy

Located in the heart of the Cote d’Or in the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges, Domaine Henri Gouges consists of 36 acres of vineyards. The 30 acres of Premier Cru vineyards has remained unchanged since the 1930s. Apart from a Bourgogne Rouge and Blanc and the Nuits-Saint-Georges Villages, there are seven Premiers Crus. The creation of Domaine Henri Gouges was the culmination of 400 years of family grape farmers, and it is, in many minds, the top domaine in Nuits-Saint-Georges. Henri formed the domaine in 1920 but was soon discouraged with selling the fruit to négociants. He envisioned a better quality wine, and by 1933 he was producing, bottling, and selling directly. While the house style has evolved, the main focus is the better reflection of the terroir in the fruit through organic & biodynamic viticulture. They believe that healthy vines produce quality fruit and thus more expressive terroir driven wines.

Winemaker: Gregory & Antoine Gouges

Farming: Biodynamic

Terroir / Soil: 9 acre monopole of the domaine. Pink Premeaux limestone, composed of calcareous scree and soil rich in clay.

Vinification: Hand sorted, gravity fed. Natural yeast fermentation. Tank fermentation at low temperature over 10 days, then transferred into barrel (20% new) for malolactic. Then racked into barrel for 18 months maturation, then bottled unfined & unfiltered.  

Tasting Notes: A wine meant to rest, this lush and structured Burgundy is expressive and powerful, but will show its best after some time in bottle. Perfect for gifting, or building a budding collection. Can age 15-20 years.
