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

"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 “La Perrière” Premier Cru 2017

"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 “Les Pruliers” Premier Cru 2017

"This too is noticeably reduced and aromatically unreadable today. Otherwise there is more volume and mid-palate density to the bigger and mostly muscular flavors that possess a less refined mouthfeel on the powerful, driving and more obviously structured finale. This is really quite good though at least some patience will be required." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges “Les Vaucrains” Premier Cru 2017

"Slightly riper aromas of plum liqueur, violet, warm earth and plenty of sauvage character lead to intense and notably dense broad-shouldered flavors that display first-rate power on the serious and youthfully austere finish. This is a big wine in the context of what is typical for the 2017 vintage and should age effortlessly." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges Village 2017

"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
