Fresh notes of cassis, red and dark berry liqueur and plenty of newly turned earth elements. There is good energy to the opulent and very rich medium weight flavors that finish with excellent length.
Domaine Henri Gouges is one of the most famous in Nuits St. Georges. The Gouges family have been vineyard proprietors in Nuits for generations and proprietors of the current domaine since 1919. Henri Gouges, along with the Marquis d' Angerville from Volnay, was in the forefront of the war against fraud in Burgundy in the 1920's and in the 1930s he was heavily involved with delineating the crus in Burgundy for the Institut National d'Appellation d'Origine. The domaine consists of 14.5 hectares of vineyards and includes holdings in 6 Nuits St. Georges 1er Crus.
The Clos des Porrets-Saint-Georges is a tiny 3.6ha monopole (under single ownership) Premier Cru vineyard and is one of the most highly revered in the Nuits-St-Georges.
