Cuvee HD (Hors D'Age)
In the 2017 vintage Gregory Gouge decided to vinify, age and bottle this special Cuvee separately. Made from very old vines or shot berries; 50% whole clusters, 50% new wood and 2 barrels produced.

A 3,6 hectares monopole, this parcel is located right under les Perrières, a former pit of Nuits Saint Georges that was previously exploited by the monks of Citeaux. Set on the pink limestone and very rocky Premeaux limestone, the Clos des Porrets is made of limestone screes and of a soil high in clay on lower slopes. Long-keeping wines that come from it express a lovely finesse after a few years of bottles. The Porrets are especially mentioned by Dr Lavalle in 1855, author of a well-known book on the wines of Burgundy, which he considers as one of the best cru of the commune. Organic
