Louis Jadot Corton Pougets Domaine des Heritiers
|Concentrated old vine fruit with impressions of raspberry and wild cherry and aromas of smoke, minerals, rose petal and oak are confirmed on this wine's dense, layered palate which carries into a slightly austere structure marked by a high-toned acidity and solid tannic spine.

This starts out with pretty cherry, currant and cranberry flavors, backed by tart acidity. Turns dusty, with severe tannins that became better integrated with aeration. The finish is long, but this will require patience. Best from 2020 through 2035. 0180 cases imported.-BS

Bright medium red. Scented aromas of black cherry, licorice, crushed stone, rose petal and sweet oak. Silky on entry, then juicy and sharply focused in the middle, showing a captivating light touch to its pungent red fruit, mineral and spice flavors. Finishes with suave, fine-grained tannins and lovely savory persistence. I’ve been enjoying this rather feminine, stylish Corton grand cru back to the 1970s, and it has a strong track record for graceful aging.

The 2012 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru is earthier than its fellow Cortons, unfolding in the glass to reveal broody, tertiary brambly red fruit, briary and a whiff of wet limestone. The palate is well defined with fine tannins and good matiere. It is very focused, quite serious with impressive mineralite lining the long finish. This is a sophisticated Corton-Pougets for long-term ageing.
