Nuits-St-Georges, Côte-de-Nuîts, Bourgogne, France
Mineral, structured wines of intensity and power.
Henri Gouges was a pioneer of domaine bottled wine when in 1933 he defied the might and power of the negociant monopoly that traditionally purchased the wine of all the domaines in barrel. Five domaines banded together including Marquis d'Angerville to show their defiance and won the day which made vintners wealthier than they had ever been. Henri Gouges was mayor of Nuits-St-Georges and was obviously a man of some influence.
