Corton Pougets Domaine des Heritiers Louis Jadot Premier 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Dark and brooding, with black cherry, plum, earth and underbrush flavors, backed by stiff tanins. Opens up with air, revealing a mineral element and fresh finish. Its all there, just needs time..." WS Vol.8 No.15 04/12 "The 2009 Corton “Pougets” is a ripe (but not overripe) example of the 2009 vintage that will be outstanding with sufficient bottle age. The black fruity nose offers up scents of black cherries, dark chocolate, stony minerality, coffee bean, game and new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and packed at the core with pure black fruit, with ripe tannins, lovely focus and fine length and grip on the chewy finish. This will probably be quite 1990-like in profile at its apogee. 2022-2075. 92+." John Gilman a View from the Cellar 1/11 " This is notably more complex than the Corton-Grèves because even though the noses are similar, there is more breadth here and just a touch more evident ripeness as well. There is excellent richness to the velvet-texturedand more obvious mineral-driven flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract on the satisfying, long and equally complex finish.This is a classic Pougets in style if a bit riper than is typical. Note too that as grand cru pricing and value goes, Jadot’s Pougets is consistently one of the top bargains...92-94" BH 5/11 "# 8 Wine Enthusiast Cellar Selections 2012...A gorgeously rich wine, powered by tannins but just as importantly by ripe berry fruit and crisp acidity. Smoky wood flavors blend with juicy fruit, powerful dark tannins and an intensely fresh finish. Age for seven years or more...96" WE 05/12 "Completely different in expression than Jadot's Corton Greves, Pougets buzzes and stings with its acidity, the texture soothing with a gentler touch. Dark, brisk and ethereal, this is a wine of femine power. It's tightly structured...92" W&S 10/12

  Maison Louis Jadot is a winery that’s proud of its heritage and land. Founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, Maison Jadot expanded rapidly, taking northern Europe by storm. When his son, Louis Jean Baptiste, took over in 1900, more change took place, and many vineyards were acquired, including Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles. With the help of Rudy Kopf, founder of the Kobrand Corporation, Maison Jadot expanded even further, setting up shop in both England and the U.S. In 1985, Madame Jadot sold the company to Rudy Kopf’s family, ensuring a successful future for the company. The land is very important to Maison Louis Jadot, and making the terroir shine through is always a priority. Maison Jadot identifies with its Burgundy heritage, and all wines are Appellation Contrôlée. The winery controls about 380 acres of land in Burgundy, including Côte d'Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Jacques Lardière, winemaster, works with Christine, Guillaume, and Audrey to ensure that the single-variety wines produced, including Pinot Noir for reds, Chardonnay for whites, and Gamay for Beaujolais, always produce the best, most consistent wines.
