About this Item

2009 Nuits-Saint-Georges & Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains
4 (2 x 2) 750ml

Domaine Henri Gouges is a highly regarded producer in Nuits-Saint-Georges with holdings in a number of the appellation's Premiers Crus. Established in 1920, Henri Gouges was dissatisfied with the idea of selling his fruit to négociants. He envisioned producing wines of superior quality from his new domaine and, by 1933, was producing, bottling and selling his own wines. The property has remained undivided and family-run, with custodianship passed from generation to generation. Today, it is managed by Henri’s great grandsons, Gregory and Antoine Gouges but Henri's philosophy: ‘it is on the vines that great wines are made’ has endured. The estate now holds 14.5 hectares of vineyards. The Premiers Crus of the domaine and the wider Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation are considered to be some of the finest in the Côte de Nuits.

Critics Ratings

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges 2009

‘The 2009 Nuits St. Georges is a generous wine. Layers of dark, fragrant fruit build nicely towards the juicy finish. This, too, is a beautiful bottle. The Nuits was bottled in December, 2010.’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 89/100 (May 2011)

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains 2009

‘A notably ripe and quite densely fruited nose offers up notes of plum, cassis, earth and the classic sauvage character of a classic Vaucrains. The rich, powerful, concentrated and serious broad-shouldered flavors brim with dry extract that confers a textured mouth feel to the chewy, balanced and hugely long finish. This will need 12 to 15 years of cellar time. Drink 2021+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 94/100 (Jan 2012)
