2018 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges Les Saint Georges Premier Cru
This too flirts with volatile acidity on the cooler though still liqueur-like aromas both red and dark pinot fruit that is laced with hints of violet, anise and earth. The velvety, round and overtly powerful medium weight plus flavors also possess good power and punch on the lightly stony and slightly warm finale. This is not quite so over-the-top like the Vaucrains though it is still impressively robust.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru, which was the first vineyard to be picked, has retained the precocious bouquet of blueberry and cassis, and strong violet scents emerge with time; you might describe this as "punchy." The palate is fleshy and generous, although it does not comes close to the precision and terroir expression exhibited by the 2019, which already has its nose in front.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Deep dark colour, this is a brooding monster on the nose. Plump dark fruit, a little bit of blackberry, good weight, dancing energy behind too, fortunately. A rich and succulent but not too soft nose does start to emerge right at the finish.
