Jancis Robinson | Rating: 16Light cherry colour. Very firm and bright fruited. Straightforward and much more open than Gouges wines used to be. Nice finish. Very honest. GVAuthor: Jancis Robinson
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89Moderately saturated medium red. Slightly reduced aromas of redcurrant, leather, meat and iron, plus a whiff of fresh blood. Silky-sweet and creamy, but with good rather than outstanding intensity. No shortage of spine here, but not really filled in yet. The dusty tannins come late and build slowly.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: January/February 2011
Wine Advocate | Rating: 89The 2009 Nuits St. Georges is a generous wine. Layers of dark, fragrant fruit build nicely towards the juicy finish. This, too, is a beautiful bottle.Author: Antonio Galloni
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.
