2017, Domaine Henri Gouges, NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES, Village
(2017 NSG) Soft alluring ripe red fruits with a nice zip to it. Disarmingly easy plum and red berry fruit with a red currant kick on the finish. This is normally
from 8 plots across the Nuits commune with the South side of Nuits having the most influence on the blend. Justerini & Brooks.
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 flavours possess fine volume while concluding in a nicely persistent finish. 88-90 Allen Meadows, Burghound.
The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Village comes from eight different blocks instead of the usual nine, as the Les Crots has been bottled separately. It has a simple but effective bouquet of red cherries and cranberry jus aromas. The candied palate is well balanced, offering sappy red fruit, gentle grip and a lightly spiced finish. Fine. 86-88 Neal Martin, Vinous.
