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. It is the fruit of a blending of 5 climates: the Plateaux, Belles Croix, Fleurières, Brûlées, and the Chaliots, for a surface area of 2 hectares. All of these parcels are located at the south of Nuits Saint Georges, at the start of the hillside, on deep soils, with a blending of clay, alluvium and limestone gravels. These wines are pure and generous, and need a few years before being tasted, to show their true potential.
