Nuits Saint Georges Les Saint Georges, Domaine Henri Gouges 2002

Tasting Notes

Very ripe aromas combining damp earth notes and hints of coffee, game, smoke and spice introduce crisp, precise, chewy and marvelously intense middle weight flavors underpinned by classy tannins and though this is very firm, the mid-palate sap completely buffers the structure. The intensity builds from the mid-palate and explodes on the long, chiseled finish. A great effort packed with long-term potential. Drink: 2012-20
