Winemaker Notes

This Premier Cru - exclusive to the Gouges domain with its 3.5 hectare vineyard - perfectly expresses the full character of Nuitonne Cote wines and their alignment of vines hanging onto the sloping hills : very subtle wines, developing beautiful aromatic qualities.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets St Georges has a vivacious bouquet with ebullient raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, fine mineralité with great focus. Everything is beautifully controlled here. The palate is medium-bodied with taut, tensile tannin. A little chalky in texture, it has a wonderful sense of transparency with thrilling poise on the finish enlivened by hints of sour cherry. This has great potential but it needs three of four years in bottle.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Cherry and strawberry flavors override the slight reduction, led by the vibrant structure to a long, mouthwatering conclusion. Balanced, pure and focused, if compact, with a tight finish. This improves with air, so decant now or be patient. Best from 2018 through 2032.

Reduction presently dominates the nose. There is excellent size, weight and muscle to the overtly rustic, intense and attractively textured big-bodied flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration along with plenty of structure buffering dry extract. As is usually the case with this presently linear wine, ample patience will be required.
Range: 90-92

Domaine Henri Gouges, France

Domaine Henri Gouges is, in many minds, the top grower of Nuits Saint-Georges. The Gouges family has 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 at the forefront of battles against fraud in Burgundy in the 1920's. In the 1930's Monsieur Gouges was one of the people charged with the job of delineating the crus in Burgundy for the Institut Nationale d' Appellation d'Origine, and he was a member of that regulatory body at its outset. Today, Henri Gouges' two grandsons, Christian and Pierre, carry on the traditions of the family, which has been estate-bottling for fifty years. The vineyard is entirely planted in low-yielding pinots snf the average age of the vines is between 30 and 40 years, except for the Chaignots, where the vineyard is between 10-15 years.

Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
