($91) Ruby-red. Tighter, high-pitched aromas of black raspberry, spices and flowers. Dominated today by its spine but this tactile wine is stuffed with material and is surprisingly easy to taste today. Quite sturdy on the back end but with very good black peppery lift. The tannins are firm but broad and sweet. If you have to open these 2005s soon, make sure to give them time in a decanter, notes Gouges.

The 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Clos des Porrets St.-Georges - a roughly nine acre Gouges monopole in Premeaux-Prissey - offers a meld of tart and lightly cooked cherry, abundant tannins conducive to a somewhat furry mouth feel, and a smoky, roasted meat, cooked cherry and cherry pit finish. There is no question about this wine's overall density, nor its intensity of ripe fruit. Similarly, I have little doubt it is showing the roughed-up effects of having been bottled only a week before I tasted.
