Three New Burgundy Pinots To Savour
Domaine Henri Gouges is rated as one of the top producers of Burgundy’s Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation and traces its lineage back over 400 years of family grape farming. Henri Gouges inherited 9 hectares of prime Nuits-St-Georges vineyards in 1920 which today stands at 14.5 hectares – including seven of the best situated Premier crus. Since the beginning, the Domaine has remained an undivided family property. Today, Henri’s grandchildren Pierre and Christian continue realising his vision.
While the house style has evolved, the main focus is the better reflection of the terroir in its Pinot Noir expression through organic viticulture. Domaine Henri Gouges’s abiding philosophy of maintaining the lowest yield per hectare thereby enhancing the quality and concentration of the fruit has ensured decades of high quality vintages and a reputation that precedes the producer’s wines the world over.
