2018 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Vaucrains"

SKU #1508165 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This nearly 1ha premier cru vineyard is among my favourites from Gouges, year after year. In 2018 the wines have wonderful purity and freshness, despite the heat, and the aromatics are alluring: crushed violets, nutmeg and dark cherries. Beautiful and focused with firm, ripe, supple tannins. Aged for 18 months in 20% new barriques. Long finish. (JCL) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Vaucrains chez Gouges is an excellent wine in the making- powerful and loaded with pure fruit and firm tannins, but not as massive as the version crafted at Domaine Chevillon this year. The wine delivers a superb aromatic constellation of dark berries, black cherries, venison, espresso, a great base of minerality, woodsmoke and a lovely topnote of cola. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with ripe, firm, but surprisingly suave tannins, excellent nascent complexity and a very, very long, youthful and promising finish. This will be excellent in due course. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru a floral bouquet of violet-infused black and red fruit, touches of potpourri emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied and quite edgy, with crisp, almost chalky tannins and a fine bead of acidity. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

K&L Notes

93-95pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Dense purple, veering to black with a hyper-concentrated nose, but it is still balanced. A huge sweet dark fruit mouthful with just a trace of the characteristic hillside austerity, but rather overwhelmed by the richness of the fruit. I think it will become more Vaucrains with age. Lovely peppery finish. Tasted: November 2019."
