BH 91 : The 2016 Nuits Saint Georges has a very satisfying bouquet with dark berry fruit, touches of undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly green entry, but very fresh with a fine bead of acidity, quite cohesive with a compact finish.

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.
