(55+ year old vines) As it always is, this is certainly more elegant and slightly more complex as well than the Vaucrains with dense but pretty red fruit aromas that introduce pure and refined medium full flavors that are complex and balanced on the gorgeously long finish. This is brimming with potential as well and while it too will require plenty of patience, its class and grace could allow it to be approached in its youth and then a few years later as it ages. In a word, brilliant.

($134) Saturated ruby-red. Explosive, multidimensional nose offers raspberry, dark cherries macerated in alcohol, minerals and leather, with a treble note of citrus skin. Like liquid silk in the mouth; already shows its great depth, but the highly complex, soil-inflected flavors of black raspberry, dark chocolate, leather and fresh blood are still youthfully reserved. Most impressive today on the remarkably sappy, precise finish, which builds slowly and subtly and is given even greater penetration and grip by a suggestion of grapefruit. I could drink this wine every night of the week-and probably for the next two decades.

The 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Les St.-Georges displays a fascinating nose of black cherry, wood smoke, sandalwood, and sea breeze. Rich, deep, charred meat, toasted nut, lightly-cooked black fruit and myriad mineral notes lead to a palate-saturating spread of flavors, finishing vividly bright and above all - with its elements of wet stone, salts, iodine and ore-like if ineffable essences - memorably mineral. Fine-grained in tannin and formidably concentrated, this should be at least a twenty-year wine, revealing plenty of additional nuance along the way. The 2004 version, incidentally, is also serious and worth tracking down and cellaring for a few years.

About This Producer

Founded by Henri Gouges, this domaine was subsequently developed by his two sons, Michel and Marcel. For the last few years, Pierre and Christian, the grandsons, have carried on the traditions of the estate. Pierre has a passionate interest in the care of the vines and Christian oversees winemaking. Uncompromising about quality and respectful of the typicity of the different vintages, he bottles after 18 months aging in oak-barrels, using a maximum of 20% new oak in the final blending.
