Henri Gouges and the 2009 World of Pinot Noir


Henri Gouges is an important figure in the history of Burgundy. Along with Marquis D’Angerville, he waged war against fraud in Burgundy in the 1920s, in the 1930s he helped delineate the crus in Burgundy for the Institut National d’Appellation d’Origine, and in 1933 challenged the negociants by bottling his wine at the Domaine and selling it directly to the public.

The Domaine Henri Gouges dates to 1919 and the third generation is now in control, specifically Henri Gouges’ two grandsons, Pierre and Christian. The Domaine’s 35-acre vineyard holdings are entirely within the commune of Nuits-St-Georges and include both Village appellation land and six Premier Crus. The average age of the vines is 35 years. One Premier Cru, the 2.5-acre Les Saint-Georges, is considered by many to be the equivalent of a Grand Cru.

Join us as we sit in on a tasting seminar at the 2009 World of Pinot Noir with noted Burgundy authority, “Burghound” Allen Meadows, and Pierre Gouges of Domaine Henri Gouges

    Tim, it seems to work form some, but not for others. Perhaps the size is an issue? Will check into options.

    I really look forward to the seminars that you guys record (please, keep them coming), but no one does it better than Allen Meadows. Allen’s knowledge just flows when he talks about Burgundy and I love how he gives you as much background as possible. I really appreciate it as I am still learning about Burgundy.

    Keep up the good work Allen and kudos to the Graperadio crew for recording the seminars.

    Great show (as usual), but what happened to the follow-on interview with Pierre Gouges that you mentioned at the end of this show?
