Strong reduction renders an evaluation of the nose impossible at present. By contrast there is good freshness and verve to the elegant and refined medium weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the explosively long and impeccably well-balanced finish. This isn't quite as ripe as the Vaucrains but it's clearly finer and classier. Note that this will also require ample cellaring before it's ready for prime time. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2027+



The 2012 Nuits St Georges Les St Georges 1er Cru has a wonderful, multifaceted bouquet with woodland scents permeating the redcurrant and cranberry fruit, a little austere but that is in keeping with the Gouges style. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp fresh tannin, vibrant red fruit that are austere but extremely focused. There is superb salinity on the sappy finish that fans out with style and panache. This is the one cuvée that has really come on leaps and bounds since I tasted it in barrel. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015
