Henri Gouges domain, which is considered one of the most respected in Nuits, was founded at the beginning of the last century, and for more than 50 years, the founder Henri Gouges domain served as the unofficial "caretaker" in the wine of Burgundy. Largely due to his gift and convinced most Burgundian winemakers began to follow the rules of AOC, which Henri Gouges himself and developed. In this part of the hill on the border of two municipalities - Nuits-Saint-Georges and Permo-Prissy are three of the best climate: Premiers Crus "Saint-Georges", "le Kai" and "le Vokren." Of these, "le Vokren", an area of 6.20 hectares, lies just above the slope at 280 meters above sea level, its soil and abundant gravel and large boulders, but interspersed with large limestone and clay. Wines that domain distinguishes the depth and complexity of flavor and aroma. It is dark colored, concentrated, well-structured, excellent wines. Red wine domain still remains one of the most refined red wines of Burgundy.
Premiers Crus "Le Vokren" - one of the best climate municipality Nuits-Saint-Georges. The wine has a lot of potential exposure within 15-20 years. The production of this wine begins with manual collection and dual triage (selection) of grapes. Three-level gravitational winery allows vinified wines more delicately. This is followed by alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barriques, 20% of which - new.
