Les Perrières – or sometimes La Perrière – is a prestigious premier cru site of the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation, producing both red and white wines. This particular release is from Domaine Henri Gouges, a family-owned estate now run by Grégory Gouges and his cousin Antoine. Just like their Bourgogne Blanc, this white wine is made from the Pinot Blanc variety called ‘Pinot Gouges’, discovered by Henri Gouges, founder of the estate. Expect a creamy expression, with plenty of citrus fruit from the start, a sprinkle of white pepper and a refreshing, mineral finish.
The 2018 Nuits St. Georges “Perrières” Blanc from the Gouges family is also lovely in this vintage. The wine is a bit more reserved in personality than the already delicious Bourgogne, offering up a complex and very pure blend of white peach, fresh almond, salty soil tones, spring flowers and just a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and complex, with a good core of fruit, fine focus and grip, sound framing acids and good backend mineral drive on the long finish. This will want a couple of years in the cellar to allow its secondary layers to emerge, but it will not need too long before it really starts to drink beautifully.
