A juicy, fleshy red, exhibiting pretty strawberry and cherry flavors tinged by oak spice. Firmly structured, elegant and silky in texture, opening with air and winding into a lingering, spicy finish. Best from 2018 through 2032.
Medium red. Intriguing aromas of strawberry, smoky minerality, herbs, spices and iodine. Supple but quite dry, showing very good lift and a firm underlying spine to flavors of bitter cherry, spices and earth. Much more closed and tannic than a barrel sample I tasted in the fall of 2014. There's nothing easy about this solidly structured Corton today. (ST) 90+
More measured amounts of wood and menthol elements are present but do not dominate the cool and very pure essence of red currant, forest floor, earth and, like the Grèves, soft sauvage nuances. I like the sense of tension and vibrancy given off by the medium weight plus flavors that possess plenty of minerality before delivering fine length on the dusty and moderately austere finish. This isn't dry but would be fair to say that it's no charmer either.
The 2013 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru (under the Domaine des Heritiers Jadot label) has a slightly high-toned, quite opulent bouquet with kirsch, cassis and raspberry preserve scents that gradually calm down in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine line of acidity and a slightly "blocky" finish that does not quite possess the finesse of the Corton-Greves at this premature stage. Hopefully, it will mellow and manifest more refinement when in bottle. Like last year, I sectioned off two morning sessions to taste through the complete range of Louis Jadot’s Côte d’Or wines. That’s over 100 wines and so I prefer to not rush, spend my time diligently tasting and comparing each one in the presence of winemaker Frédéric Barnier and then on the second morning accompanied by proprietor Pierre-Henry Gagey, fresh from a ten-day fasting in Germany and positively bounding with positivity. With such a plethora of vineyards under their wing, both owned and rented, both gentlemen have a birds-eye view of how Burgundy performed in the vintage.
