2020 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains Premier Cru
Here the nose if quite firmly reduced and revealing basically nothing today. This equally broad-shouldered flavors aren't quite as dense but they're certainly finer with good minerality and lift on the palate coating, balanced and beautifully persistent finale. This is very promising provided you have the patience to wait. Drink through 2035+.

Incredibly dense purple rather than black. While the bouquet follows a similar refrain to others in the Gouges 2020 line-up, there is more natural class from the vineyard site below. The clear limestone feel comes up through the middle and the palate is entirely red fruit. This one will really work. Refined tannins here. And the right acid balance. Excellent.
