2021, Domaine Henri Gouges, NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES Village
$101.20 inc. GST
From the fruit of 5 climats: Plateaux, Belles Croix, Fleurières, Brûlées, and Chaliots.
A fine bright crimson, with a lively red fruit, strawberry and raspberry together. Good intensity, higher acidity than the Bourgogne, which helps to deliver an attractive crunch to the finish. Medium plus length, no need to wait too long for this. Drink from 2025-2028. Tasted: November 2022. *** 89 Jasper Morris MW
The 2021 Nuits Saint-Georges Village has a tertiary, slightly mulchy bouquet that unfolds in the glass and gains delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, very fresh, a little attenuation towards the finish but it should give several years of drinking pleasure. 87 Neal Martin, Vinous.
A more deeply pitched and markedly earthier nose reveals notes of both red and dark currant along with a hint of the sauvage. The rich, velvety and caressing medium weight flavours are almost easy-going and delicate on the delicious and lightly structured finale. This delicious effort is definitely not a classic Nuits but it's attractive all the same. 88 Allen Meadows, Burghound
The ‘classique’ village-level wine from Gouges has a lovely ripe cherry fruit, pleasant floral notes on the nose, balanced acidity, and an elegant, silky feel on the palate. The wine is made from nine parcels between the center of the village and the border with Premeaux, including Belle Croix, Les Fleurières, Les Brûlées, Les Chaliots, and others, all located down-slope from the premier cru band. They are made in a consciously accessible style. 92 Clive Curtis MW, Decanter Magazine.
