2010 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Clos des Porrets"

SKU #1435555 93 points John Gilman

 The 2010 Clos des Porrets is a stunning wine in the making, soaring from the glass in a complex and sappy blend of red and black cherries, stony minerality, espresso, gamebirds, woodsmoke and a lovely topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with brilliant soil inflection, firm, well-integrated tannins, excellent focus and balance and tangy acids perking up the very long, pure and properly reserved finish. A great vintage of Clos des Porrets. 93+  (12/2011)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Clos des Porrets Saint-Georges is the first wine in this lineup that shows the structure of the vintage. Freshly cut flowers, minerals, graphite and black cherries are woven into a textured fabric of notable class. I especially like its energy and drive. A precise, finely-chiseled finish rounds things out nicely. (AG)  (12/2011)

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good full red. Redcurrant, raspberry, crushed stone and smoky minerality on the rather serious nose. At once silky and tangy in the mouth, with raspberry and stone flavors dominating. A step up in breadth and dimension from the foregoing wines, offering lovely inner-mouth perfume. Very representative of the south side of the village: 'never with explosive fruit early,' notes Gouges. Has the firm tannin/acid structure to age. This large Clos comprises 3.8 hectares of vines.

 Needs air to reveal the black cherry, violet, mineral and spice notes. Rich and tannic, yet balanced overall and long on the finish. (BS, Web-2013)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Reduction dominates the nose. By contrast to the funky nose, there is a lovely inner mouth perfume to the precise, intense and vibrant middle weight plus flavors that possess good volume. There is admirable persistence on the quite firm finish that is at once pure and actually rather refined, which is not always the case with this wine. Worth a look.  (1/2012)
