Average critic rating : 89.0 points



Here too a background application of oak is visible on the intensely earthy and beautifully complex nose of both red and blue pinot fruit, earth, violet and plum scents. There is good size, weight and power to the relatively supple mid-palate though the firm core of tannins is apparent on the moderately austere and impressively long finish. This is very Nuits in character but not unduly rustic or rough. Tasted: Jan 14, 2013. Drink: 2021+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There is a slight mustiness on the nose of Gouges’s Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets ‘11, with plenty of sous-bois notes coming through in lieu of fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins. There is a pastille-like quality on the entry with touches of spice and black pepper toward the sappy finish. It just seems to be missing a little substance on the finish. Gregory Gouges oversaw some better crus in this vintage. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
