2019 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-St-Georges Les Vaucrains Premier Cru
Discreet wood influence surrounds the notably ripe and fresh aromas of cassis, plum liqueur, earth and evident sauvage wisps. There is excellent richness and volume to the suave, round and seductive mid-palate of the broad-shouldered flavors that contrast markedly with the very firmly structured, youthfully austere and impressively persistent finish. As is usually the case, this is very compact and backward and a wine that will require extended aging to reach its peak. Drink 2036+.

Glowing exciting purple. The nose shows the oak a bit along with the power of the vintage. A huge luxury mouthful but very much in red fruit. This is heady enough but showing plums not prunes. It will be cleaned up by racking and I suspect that this is going to be very good.
