Gouges Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets 2016
Henri Gourges is a renowned name in the Côtes d'Or, His father, owned a scattering of his own vines, and was involved in the regrafting program following the phylloxera epidemic. There are 14.5-hectares under vine, with six Premier Crus focused upon Nuits-Saint-Georges.
A relatively elegant and surprisingly high-toned floral-infused red and blue pinot fruit nose is in keeping with the brooding, intense and vibrant medium full-bodied flavours that finish with a certain chewiness and moderate amounts of this wine's hallmark youthful austerity supported by a firmly tannic spine.
Grape: Pinot Noir
