Peter Maude Fine Wines
2017, Domaine Henri Gouges, NUIT-SAINT-GEORGES, 1er Cru "Les Chaignots"
The Gouges wines in 2017 are flattering in their youth - unusual, but no bad thing if you want something to drink while you're waiting for your 2015s and '16s. Sourced from a 0.5ha parcel planted in 1970 and 1985, this is spicy, aromatic and comparatively forward, with some underlying grip on the finish. 93/100 Tim Atkin MW, Decanter.
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2028.
