2014 Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges St-Georges

Fresh and mouth-coating fruit on this Gouges 1er Cru Les St-Georges is perfectly integrated with the aromatic cherry fruit. This has a very long finish cut with a dash of mineral. (CW 5/11/15)

Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges has a perfumed nose with blackberry and bilberry fruit, tangible mineral scents, very fine delineation, cold flint and limestone emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, impressive structure, cool, calm and collected, building towards a crisp, tensile tobacco-tinged finish that is deceptively powerful. This will have a lot more to give after bottling, seems resentful that someone would awaken it from its barrel slumber. 91-93 points

Allen Meadows

(from a 1.1 ha parcel of 55+ year old vines). Once again there is subtle wood present on the spicy, cool and beautifully well-layered nose of ripe dark currant, plum, violet and humus scents. There is a sleek mouth feel to the solidly concentrated and mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that exhibit outstanding length on the markedly firm finale that is also impeccably well-balanced. Ample patience absolutely required. 92-94 points

Tim Atkin MW

It may or may not be prom oted to Grand Cru status, but this is one of the three best vineyards in the village and this interpretation, from a 1.08 hectare parcel, is superb. Fine, focused and well balanced with racy acidity, sweet red fruits and polished tannins. Drink 2020-30. 95 points
