2012 Nuits St Georges Les Vaucrains Henri Gouges

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 92.25 points



This is easily the most sauvage wine of the range with its nose of smoked meat, plum, cassis, humus and plenty of underbrush. There is a distinctly earthy character to the rich, intense and broad-shouldered flavors that exude a focused power before culminating in a concentrated, long and very serious finish. This brooding and very backward effort will require a long siesta in the cellar before it will be approachable. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2027+



The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Vaucrains has a very complex bouquet with blackberry, briary, wet stone and light rose petal scents that waft enticingly from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a little more supple than the Les Pruliers with strawberry and raspberry notes toward the linear, tertiary finish. I think the 25% of vines that were replanted and now 18 years old import a sense of joie de vivre and freshness. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015
