Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir (100%)

Tasting notes: Fresh notes of cassis, red and dark berry liqueur and plenty of newly turned earth elements. There is good energy to the opulent and very rich medium weight flavors that finish with excellent length.

About the Wine: This is a monopole of the domain of about nine acres. It is located just below the Perrieres. It is a former quarry of Nuits Saint Georges, which was exploited by the monks of Citeaux. Sitting on the stony pink limestone Premeaux, the Clos des Porrets is composed of calcareous scree and soil rich in clay. The wines from here express an elegant finesse after only a few years in the bottle.

Expert Ratings:

Burghound.com 90/100

“A slightly fresher array is composed by notes of cassis, red and dark berry liqueur and plenty of newly turned earth elements. There is better energy to the opulent and very rich medium weight flavors that terminate in a perceptibly warm finale that exhibits slightly better length.” - Allen Meadows

Vinous 90 / 100 

“The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos des Porrets-Saint-Georges 1er Cru was due to be racked the following week and bottled before the end of the year. It has a generous bouquet of upfront red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, a little too ripe for my liking and when compared to previous vintages. The medium-bodied palate offers soft tannins, gentle grip and plenty of fleshy red fruit, although it is missing some grip and density toward the finish. Pleasant, but I would broach this in its youth.” - Neal Martin

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91 / 100 

“From a climat that was largely spared by the hail that impacted this commune, Gouges's 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets Saint Georges offers up a generous, youthfully fruit-driven bouquet of plums, raspberries and cassis mingled with subtle hints of cola and creamy new oak. Medium to full-bodied, pure and velvety, it's layered and fleshy, with powdery tannins and an ample core of fruit. This is a rather ripe, sumptuous, even rather heady example of the frequently rather stern Clos des Porrets Saint Georges, and in that respect, it's very typical of the vintage.” - Robert Parker

James Suckling 94 / 100

“Wild bramble fruit, dried leaves, crushed stones, raw cocoa and walnut husk on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Lingering dark-chocolate and toasty notes with dark, earthy undertones. Very refined and poised. Subtle. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling

About the Winery: Domaine Henri Gouges is located in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges, in Burgundy. The estate was founded in 1919 by Henri Gouges and continues to be owned and operated by the Gouges family. He was among the first producers to reject the Burgundian trading system then considered corrupt.

Instead, from the 1920s, Henri Gouges devoted himself to estate-bottling, a rare practice at the time. In the 1930s, when the Burgundian appellations were first designated, he successfully led a campaign against the designation of the Nuits-Saint-Georges vineyards as Grands Crus when he was both mayor of the village and appointed member of INAO.

Today, the vineyards of Domaine Henri Gouges cover 14.5 hectares, including plots spread over seven sites classified Premier Cru. Almost all wines are made from Pinot Noir, but a limited amount of white wines are also produced. A Pinot Blanc is produced under the generic Bourgogne Blanc appellation.
