Christian Gouges opines that this monopole site offers an especially favorable cross-section of the slope its clay-rich lower portions promoting good acid retention and structure while The Gouges share of 2006... Christian Gouges opines that this monopole site offers an especially favorable cross-section of the slope its clay-rich lower portions promoting good acid retention and structure while The Gouges share of 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Pruliers - like their Clos des Porrets St.-Georges - runs from the clay-rich bottom of this cru up to its stony top (where notes Christian Gouges working the vines is downright dangerous) - which may help account for its complexity. Ripe rich cherry plum and lingonberry retain lovely clarity to a wealth of somehow ore-like as well as chalky mineral nuances. Like the Porrets this has abundant but fine tannins and comes off both dense and texturally silken. It finishes in a slightly cooler more austere and overtly mineral vein but with invigorating tartness and sheer refreshment that keep it enticing. I would however be only very slightly less-inclined to enjoy this young than I would other wines of this collection while expecting it to perform well for the better part of a decade.
