Corton Pougets, Louis Jadot 2019
The 2019 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is excellent, unwinding in the glass with notes of cherries, plums, orange rind, dark chocolate, sweet spices and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, it's deep and concentrated, with broad shoulders and rich, powdery structuring tannins. As usual, this is a fine proposition for the medium- to long-haul.

Attractive mid crimson. A fuller plumper bouquet than the Grèves, as the fruit appears riper. Still shows up with some tannins at the back. At the moment the fruit is showing a little bit too much ripeness for classical tastes, but this is still a good wine. Tasted: October 2020

The 2019 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru was ever so slightly reduced on the nose, but opens with time to reveal quite intense black fruit laced with vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very good weight and a fine bead of acidity. This conveys the most energy of the three Corton Grand Crus from Jadot that I tasted. Velvety texture on the finish. Lovely. Just one used barrel produced.

Mid ruby colour. Complex and spicy on the nose, with forest fruits and baked plum. There is a real weight of fruit on the palate, fleshy and ripe, which complements the powerful, mouthcoating tannins. Powerful and toasty through to a long, berry-laden finish.
