We have saved the best of our Gouges offers for last. Les Saint Georges is Nuits St. Georges's most celebrated vineyard producing profound wines that are refined and detailed. Tasting the Les St. Georges was one of our greatest Burgundy moments with the 2018 vintage. It is an incredible wine that is deeply layered and complex, showing the absolute best that NSG has to offer with laser-like precision. The Minerality here is fantastic and classic Nuits coupled with excellent structure and depth. This is a beautiful Red Burgundy, and while it needs a little time in the bottle still, the '18 vintage won't need a decade to get there. An excellent buy and a bottle we cant recommend enough for those looking for a serious Red Burgundy.
John Gilman 95 points! "The 2018 Les St. Georges from Domaine Gouges is also superb, with the depth, power and structure of the very best wines of the commune in 2018, coupled to great purity and early complexity. The bouquet delivers a refined blend of black plums, sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, gamebird, a touch of balsam bough, bitter chocolate and a very complex base of minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and shows off a stunning core, with firm, ripe tannins, stunning backend mineral drive and a very, very long and complex finish. This will take a long time in the cellar to blossom, but in time, it will be pure magic!"
