2016 Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges Clos des Porrets 1er Cru [JG93]
John Gilman, 93 Points
"Clos des Porrets is always the most red fruity of the Gouges family’s premier crus when it is ready to drink, but in many vintages, it can start out life quite black fruity and this is certainly the case with this very promising 2016. The nose wafts from the glass in a lovely mix of cassis, dark berries, bitter chocolate, gamebird, a fine base of soil and a nice touch of violets in the upper register.
On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and still quite primary in profile, with a rock solid core of sappy fruit, superb backend mineral drive and outstanding focus and grip on the ripely tannic and very well-balanced finish. This will be superb with a decade’s worth of bottle age. (Drink between 2026-2075)"
The 2015 vintage was #79 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 2018 list!
