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.
This is actually quite aromatically similar to the Corton-Grèves though with a bit more elegance. The elegance continues onto the sleekly muscular middle weight flavors that also exude evident minerality on the moderately austere finale that offers both very fine depth and length. This also possess excellent development potential and is a wine that's going to need at least a decade first.
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.
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
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.
