Corton Pougeots, Louis Jadot 2016
Strong wood/menthol influence frames red and dark currant aromas that are liberally laced with spice and earth hints. As is usually the case, the mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is much finer than that of either the Grèves or the Clos du Roi but less concentrated while offering excellent depth and length on the saline finish.

The Pougets is one of the stars of the Jadot range in 2016, leaping from the glass with a deep bouquet of sapid black fruit, mossy soil, roasted game, coffee and game bird. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, bright and concentrated, with a deep core of fruit, supple tannins and superb energy on the long, penetrating finish.
