The Gouges family has been vineyard proprietors in Nuits for generations and proprietors of the current domaine since 1919. Henri Gouges, along with the Marquis d' Angerville from Volnay, was in the forefront of the war against fraud in Burgundy in the 1920's and in the 1930s he was heavily involved with delineating the crus in Burgundy for the Institut National d'Appellation d'Origine, and he was a member of that regulatory body at its outset. Today, Henri Gouges' two grandsons, Christian and Pierre, own and manage the domaine. For 15 years, the whole estate has been working according to the principles of organic farming

Nuits St Georges 1er Cru La Perriere (Blanc)

Just like our Bourgogne Blanc, this white wine comes 100% from the Pinot Blanc variety, called “Pinot Gouges”. This grape, originated from the Pinot Noir, was discovered by Henri Gouges, founder of the estate, during an inspection of his vines. The La Perrière cru is produced, as its name implies, in an old stone quarry. We find here very rocky and chalky soils. This unique cru, as a result of its variety and low production (41 ares), offers intense, complex and unusual wines. Organic
