Press review:

David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate, 93 Points – “The richness of ripe black cherry and black raspberry is augmented in Gouges’s 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Vaucrains by dark chocolate; smoky black tea; bitter herbs and fruit pits; and a wonderfully savory saline, chalky, and somehow ore-like suggestion of things mineral. Palate-staining and insistently fresh and invigorating for all of its richness and sweetness of fruit, this deep, dense, darkly-hued wine manages to soar in its finish. The tannins here are more evident than in wines that went before it in the present line-up, and I would advise holding this for 3-4 years before planning on relishing it over the subsequent half dozen or more.”
Burghound, 93, Points ‘Outstanding’ – “A ripe, pretty and again, unusually elegant set of ripe aromas that run more to the blue side of the fruit spectrum with subtle spice and warm earth nuances that can also be found on the decidedly masculine flavors that, like the Porrets, are brooding and chewy on the explosive and phenolically ripe finish. The usual power, size and weight are here but it’s a bit more elegant than usual. In a word, impressive.”
