Henri Gouges 2017 Nuits-St-Georges, Burgundy, France (375ml half bottle)

Located in the heart of the Cote d’Or in the village of Nuits-SaintGeorges, 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.

WS: 93 POINTS “Exotic scents of violet, raspberry and wild cherry mark this juicy red. Vivid and fruity, yet backed by a baseline of firm tannins. Shows fine balance and a lingering aftertaste of red berries and mineral. Best from 2022 through 2038.”
