International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(this wine, the Vaucrains and the Saint-Georges were bottled in April of 2010): Good bright medium red. Enticing, very pure aromas of cherry, raspberry and flowers. Quite juicy and precise; not a fleshy wine but intensely fruity, taut and pure. Impressively long, rising finish. Gregory Gouges told me he finds most of the family's 2008s to be agreeable now and probably best drunk early for their youthful fruit. He's not convinced that the wines have enough dry extract for extended aging.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2011
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Bright crimson. Very light but true nose. Great attack. Lots of fruit and masses of freshness. Complete wine that could only have been made in Burgundy. Good tension and vivacity. Super clean.Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 89Bright red currant and cherry on the nose of the Gouges 2008 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Pruliers translate into a sassy palate freshness strongly marked by berry skin and pit. At once palpably extract-rich yet at the same time both silken-textured and buoyant, this epitomizes the brightness of its vintage, and even if it isn't ' for now, at least ' enormously complex, it's elegant and compellingly drinkable. I would expect it to remain fresh for a decade, and hopefully take on some nuance in the process.Author: David Schildknecht
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.
