Le Clos des Porrets Saint Georges – Henri Gouges

Monopole of a superficy area of 3,6 hectares, 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, 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.
