Henri Gouges Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges 2013
"Note: from a 1.1 ha parcel of 55+ year old vines. Sweet Spot Outstanding. A ripe and extremely fresh nose exhibits perfumed aromas of cassis, earth, spice, plum liqueur and the classic Nuits animale character along with a background touch of wood. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the velvet-textured broad-shouldered yet refined flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality onto the balanced, suave and mouth coating finale. This is a bit less structured than it usually is and certainly less so than the Vaucrains if only just. 92-94 Points. Drink: 2025+." Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue #57.
