Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 90-92

Dark ruby-colored, the 2003 Nuits-St.-Georges Clos des Porrets St.-Georges explodes from the glass with aromas of licorice, super-ripe blackberries, cassis liqueur, and roasting spices. Packed to the gills with thick fruit (my notes have the word 'denseâ?� in all-caps), this road tar and blackberry-flavored effort is medium to full-bodied and backward. Some alcoholic heat and somewhat rough tannin can be detected in its long finish.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90(+?)?

($82) Full ruby color. Pure, brooding aromas of blackberry and blueberry. Thick, powerful and impressively concentrated, with very fresh black fruit and spice cake flavors. Finishes with major, building tannins and strong lingering black fruits. Here, too, there's no shortage of acidity or verve.

Burghound | Rating: 88

(a 3.5 ha monopole with 30+ year old vines) Distinctly ripe but clearly pinot aromas introduce big, intense, rich and powerful flavors that possess wonderful potential. The generous finish is ripe, long and complex with a serious, punchy and classically styled character. This is not an elegant wine but there's plenty of character here and good balance for the vintage.

CS.  Dark crimson. Very, very lively and tense and dense. Dry tannins on the finish. Lots of extract here.

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
