2009 Burgundy Tasting Notes

Surprising and satisfying results from a recent blind tasting

2009 Dom H Gouges Clos des Porrets St. Georges 1er cru Nuits St. Georges

My 4th place wine, the group’s 3rd

Very fruity on the nose with sweet, toasty oak notes lending this a bit of a candied black cherry aroma. With air, this does tighten up, showing a bit more raw oak. To a certain extent this smells fairly commercial. The candied fruit of the nose does come across on the palate as well, but this is rich, chunky and well structured, boding well for the future. The long finish is also a sign of things to come, all mineral and black-fruited, but the bit of stickiness I felt left me with some reservations. Is this Gouges today? 89 pts
