It is not surprising that in the extremely fine and extremely structured vintage of 2005, the Gouges family’s Clos des Porrets would be a very promising example of the vintage that would be still a long way from the finish line. The deep, primary and very pure nose offers up scents of plums, dark berries, new leather, woodsmoke, incipient notes of venison and a beautifully complex base of dark soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and very primary, with a great core of sweet fruit, striking soil inflection, tangy acids and a great chassis of firm, ripe and perfectly integrated tannins that will carry this wine a very long way into the future. Today, the wine is so beautifully balanced that it is approachable in its very primary stage, but this is still more than a decade away from blossoming and it would be a shame to be drinking the wine today, when it has not yet even begun to show any of its secondary elements on either the nose or the palate. It will be a great wine in the fullness of time, so have patience!

A more elegant mix of red black violet earth spice and game notes blends into extremely rich and full-bodied flavors that are dense serious concentrated palate drenching and complex on the beautifully long finish. I quite like this as it offers buckets of character and excellent aging potential.

Dominated today by its spine but this tactile wine is stuffed with material and is surprisingly easy to taste today. Quite sturdy on the back end but with very good black peppery lift. The tannins are firm but broad and sweet. If you have to open these 2005s soon make sure to give them time in a decanter notes Gouges.
