Over the decades Domine Henri Gouges has long been considered one of most serious of the traditional styles of Nuits St Georges. Christian is chief winemaker but his nephew Grégory is making his presence felt. Since 2007 the construction of a new cellar has enabled the wines to be vinified with less pumping and extraction. The wines are racked later and the proportion of new oak has risen to over 20%. Overall, the wines retain their traditional ageing ability but are more approachable when young.
