Founded in 1919 by Henri Gouges, the Domaine is undoubtedly one of Nuits-Saint-Georges’s finest and most famous. Henri helped shape the appellation and cru tier system as we know it today and was the first Burgundian to bottle his own wine at the Domaine, which played a significant role in combatting fraud in the 20s and 30s, by guaranteeing provenance. Today the Domaine is run by his grandchildren, cousins Antoine and Gregory, who have refined the style to add a little more finesse and early drinkability to the classic power and structure that these wines are known and loved for. This parcel, with an area of an hectare, is located at the south of the Vaucrains and above the Saint Georges. This steep slope that extends between 260 and 300 meters of altitude is made of yellowish brown soils, light and sandy. The fruits that we produce offer wines with a nice subtlety that have the capacity of opening more easily than its neighbours.
