Exotic scents of violet, raspberry and wild cherry mark this juicy red. Vivid and fruity, yet backed by a baseline of firm tannins. Shows fine balance and a lingering aftertaste of red berries and mineral. Best from 2022 through 2038.
The village 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges from Gouges is a beautiful wine that shows the warmer, sun-kissed style of the vintage nicely while still having plenty of crisp, almost crunchy fruit. Notes of red cherries, strawberries, and cranberries give way to more spice and hints of spring flowers with time in the glass, and it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, nicely integrated acidity, light tannins, and terrific overall balance. This is a lovely Village level wine that has impressive richness as well as length. It’s going to evolve nicely for 10-15 years.
