Domaine Henri Gouges is, in many minds, the top grower of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Members of the Gouges family have been vineyard proprietors in Nuits for generations and proprietors of the current domaine since 1919.
Grégory Gouges describes the quality of the 2013s as a "huge surprise. Never in a million years would I have predicted this level of quality based on the incredibly difficult growing season we had. 2012 was tough but 2013 was even tougher. Moreover it was clear that the vineyards were suffering and you just don't expect great fruit when that happens.
