Tasting Notes

  • AM

    Allen Meadows, Outstanding,
    Score: 93

    A notably floral suffused nose displays notes of green tea, various dark berries, earth and a hint of the sauvage. There is good freshness and verve to the elegant and refined medium weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the explosively long and impeccably well-balanced finish. This isn't quite as structured as some vintages of this storied wine yet note that I said "isn't quite" because this will still need ample time to realize its full and considerable potential. Outstanding.

Producer

Domaine Henri Gouges

The family Gouges are renowned for their terrroir-driven style with very little new oak influence. The wines are the epitome of Nuits-St-Georges and benefit from some bottle ageing.

Region

Nuits-Saint-Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
