2002 Domaine Henri Gouges Les Saint-Georges Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru France
$224.99 USD $249.99 USD
Deep red-ruby. Highly nuanced nose combines redcurrant, iron, leather and flowers, along with a menthol austerity. Then explosively rich, silky and enveloping on the palate, with compelling sweetness of fruit and brilliant definition. Classic ripe but dry Nuits-Saint-Georges, with subtle hints of currant, iron, leather and tobacco. Finishes with a powerful spine of ripe tannins and juicy redcurrant fruit. A great example of this vineyard, with the palate presence and class of a grand cru.
