Henri Gouges is arguably the most famous domaine in Nuits St Georges but went through a rough patch of lighter production wines in the 80s and early 90s. Today, overseen by Pierre and Christian Gouges, the trust worthy power and structure of the region has returned to these highly sought after bottles. The 2013 growing season in Burgundy began cool and wet, and when the weather finally warmed in June, a massive hailstorm in July almost destroyed the vintage.  With that, many producers and Burgundy lovers anticipated another year of low yield production (a similar mid-vintage hail storm bruised the region in 2012).  While the region experienced one of the latest harvests in decades, savvy producers such as Gouges used meticulous vineyard care and sorting techniques to create a vintage that produced what writer Stephen Tanzer calls, “Wonderfully vibrant, perfumed, transparent wines that should please lovers of classic Burgundy.”
