One of the most reliable and best value producers in Burgundy. Making only wines from Nuits-St-Georges means Henri Gouges is slightly unfashionable. But their wines embody the solid tannins, fruit cake and mineral/iron stone spirit of Nuits perfectly.

Fruitcake, ironstone, silk and firm tannins. This is classic Nuits that is drinking well from now but will delight for many years yet.


The main trading town of the Cotes de Nuits the wines here are sturdy. And by sturdy I mean tannic. They have some of the biggest tannins of all the reds with some nice fruit cake like characters and a limestone core. There are no Grand Crus here but there is some seriously impressive Premier Cru and Village wine to be had.


The classic part of Burgundy known as the Cote D’Or (the slope of gold) is essentially one vineyard that is 60km long and maybe 5km at its widest. From this limestone ridge some of the most complex, long-lived and aromatic wines are produced from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Cistercian monks who owned the land codified the entire region and so each small plot has a name.

Pinot Noir  

This is the most elusive grape. It is relatively early ripening and extremely sensitive to terroir. Its perfect place on earth is the Cote d’Or in Burgundy. So haunting are great red Burgundy’s charms that growers everywhere try to emulate them. Pinot Noir is not just a one trick pony, it can make great reds, rosé, sparkling and even sweet wines, whites on occasion and I’ve tasted a decent fortified Pinot Noir too.


Overlooked after the stunning 2005 vintage, the 06s offer lovely drinking from the good producers. True to terroir, well balanced and refreshing wines that will live longer than most people think.
