Domaine Henri Gouges
2005 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains 750ml
Good deep red-ruby. Wild dark berries, bitter chocolate, minerals, blood orange and crushed rocks on the vibrant nose. Densely packed and wonderfully sweet, but with superb acidity giving it great lift today. Wild red berry flavors are perked up by a suggestion of red grapefruit. As penetrating and fresh as this wine is today, it's also delicious to taste. Surely this will shut down in bottle at some point and last a very long time, but today it's a knockout. This has delivered splendidly on its early promise. Gouges notes that this site ripened its fruit especially slowly in 2005.
