The 2016 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges was cropped at just 12 hectoliters per hectare this vintage. Like the Les Vaucrains, I just felt that the aromatics were a tad subdued compared to Les Pruliers or Les Porrets. It is nicely defined but I would like more vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannin, here the brightness and energy belatedly beginning to shine and it shows fine tension and elegance toward the finish. It is not the greatest Les Saint-Georges that Gouges will ever make, but it comes good at the end.
