The 2017 Domaine Gouges Pruliers has a lovely sappiness to its personality on both the nose and palate, but is still a quite reserved and structured young wine (as one would expect from this terroir at this domaine!) and the wine has enormous potential. The bouquet delivers a fine blend of black cherries, black raspberries, bitter chocolate, gamebird, an excellent base of dark soil tones, woodsmoke, vanillin oak and an incipient note of cola in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and again, quite rock solid at the core, with its full-bodied format supporting ripe, seamless tannins and outstanding focus and grip on the long, youthfully complex and perfectly balanced finish. Just add time!
The age of the vines is quite diverse in this 1.8ha block, ranging from 20 to 80 years. It's a comparatively forward red, especially for a Nuits from the south side of the village. Notes of summer berries and tobacco pouch mingle appealingly on the nose and palate with supporting acidity and scented oak, 20% new. (TA)
This too is noticeably reduced and aromatically unreadable today. Otherwise there is more volume and mid-palate density to the bigger and mostly muscular flavors that possess a less refined mouthfeel on the powerful, driving and more obviously structured finale. This is really quite good though at least some patience will be required. *Outstanding*
The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers wafts from the glass with an appealing bouquet of raspberries, red cherries, spiced plums, dried flowers and earthy forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a ripe core of fruit, tangy acids and a firm, stony finish. It's a suave, nicely integrated rendition of a climat that can sometimes be forbiddingly structural in its youth. (WK)
The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru offers intense black cherry, boysenberry and blueberry on the ripe, candied, generous nose, becoming more floral with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit laced with blood orange and spices. Quite dense and grippy, this is another Gouges 2017 that will require several years in bottle. (NM)
