2006 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les St Georges

Wine colour
France > Burgundy > Côte de Nuits
Domaine Henri Gouges
Tasting Notes:

A big, big brooding nose of great complexity. Great colour and almost perfect balance. The palate is perhaps a little misleading as the depth and power of the fruit make this a delicious wine now but don’t be fooled as this will last a lifetime. Drink from 2017.

Press Reviews:

`The Gouges 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Les St.-Georges evinces a sweet, liqueur-like concentration of blackberry and cherry, yet manages to retain a lovely suggestion of fresh fruit as well that is unexpected given the headiness and suggestive richness to its aromas. A clean meatiness underlies the lush fruit. There is plenty of tannin here but it is so refined – and the fruit so sweetly concentrated – that one has to attend closely to notice it, and the textural impression is one of silken refinement.` 96 pts, David Schildknecht `Bright ruby-red color. Knockout nose combines wild blackberry, minerals and leather; pure, complex and an essence of this top premier cru. Pure, juicy and intense, with superb definition and lift to its dense black fruit flavors. Clearly the finest `06 in this cellar; this has grand cru class. Finishes with broad, rich, granular tannins and terrific subtle persistence. This and the Vaucrains may need a good decade of cellaring.` 92-94 pts, Stephen Tanzer
