Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges “Clos des Porrets St. Georges” Premier Cru 2018

R1,175.00 inc. VAT
"From a climate that was largely spared by the hail that impacted this commune, Gouges's 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets Saint Georges offers up a generous, youthfully fruit-driven bouquet of plums, raspberries and cassis mingled with subtle hints of cola and creamy new oak. Medium to full-bodied, pure and velvety, it's layered and fleshy, with powdery tannins and an ample core of fruit. This is a rather ripe, sumptuous, even rather heady example of the frequently rather stern Clos des Porrets Saint Georges, and in that respect, it's very typical of the vintage." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges “Clos Fontaine Jacquinot” 2018

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
This is a special cuvée introduced last year. It comes from the bottom of the village sector of Les Crots which always has miniature yields and a different style. To reinforce this, the wine is vinified with 50% whole bunches, contrary to the usual Gouges technique. And it shows they can do it if they want to. Lighter color and a more lifted nose with some crushed strawberry. It is very pretty if you like the style, which I do, with a lush ripe finish -Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

"A very ripe nose blends notes of poached plum, dark currant and plenty of sauvage character. There is slightly better volume and mid-palate density to the velvety and round flavors that also terminate in a mildly warm finish that is sufficiently chewy and rustic to cut the finish somewhat short." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges “La Perrière” Premier Cru 2017

R1,475.00 inc. VAT
"Residual hints of the malolactic fermentation, sulfur and wood are all that are discernible today. Otherwise the sleeker and more mineral-driven flavors possess lovely drive on the intense, focused, linear and serious finish. Note that my rating assumes that the nose will clean up as the sulfur and wood are absorbed." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges “Clos des Porrets St. Georges” Premier Cru 2017

R1,050.00 inc. VAT
"The wood treatment is a bit more evident than with any of the prior wines but not so much as to diminish the appeal of the earthier and cooler aromas of violet, plum and full-on sauvage notes. The delicious middle weight flavors are more refined than usual if not actually refined, all wrapped in detailed, focused and solidly powerful finish. Note that while this will certainly age, it's sufficiently round to make for reasonably good early drinking." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges Village 2017

R795.00 inc. VAT
"Discreet wood serves as a relatively neutral backdrop for the fresh aromas of red currant and earth that are laced with plenty of sauvage character. The rich, mouth coating and sappy medium weight flavors possess fine volume while concluding in a nicely persistent finish that is, if not exactly refined, then certainly less rustic than usual." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
