About This Vineyard

The Henri GOUGES domaine was established in Nuits Saint Georges at the very beginning of this century. Founded by Henri Gouges, it was subsequently developed by his two sons, Michel and Marcel. For the last few years, Pierre and Christian, the grandsons, have carried on the traditions of this organic estate.

Pierre has a passionate interest in the care of the vines; he regulates the yield while obtaining the optimum grape quality. By grassing over some of the vineyard and by numerous trials in conjunction with official bodies he has been able to integrate a new type of culture, the respect of the environment and a contribution to the best expression of the terroir in the wines.

Christian blends modernity in the winery with traditional vinification. Not only does he have the worry of monitoring, harvest limits and quality checking (sorting the grapes during the harvest ), but he also pays particular attention to the maturing of the wine in barrels. Uncompromising about quality and respectful of the typicity of the different vintages, he takes care of the bottling after 18 months ageing in oak barrels, using a maximum of 20 % new oak in the final blending (assemblage). Over three generations, the Henri Gouges domain has had the honour of appearing on many of the most respected tables in France and across the world.
