The 2017 Clos des Porrets St-Georges is an absolutely sensational showing from Henri Gouges. Sourced from a 9-acre monopole with 30+ year-old vines this gorgeous Nuits-St-Georges begins with dazzling aromatics of black raspberries and wild berries which are woven together with dried exotic spices, dried soil, fresh florals, forest herbs and minerals which all take shape. On the palate this is precise and impeccably structured around a focused core of vibrant, beautifully ripe fruit. It goes on to display remarkable overall balance and concentration leading up to the sappy, yet mouth watering finish. The 2017 is nothing short of utterly sublime and is already offering tremendous appeal at this young age, however that said, it also possesses the undeniable potential to age gracefully for many years to come.
