Domaine Louis Jadot Heritiers Corton Grand Cru "Les Pougets" 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Good medium red. Reticent nose hints at redcurrant, cherry, smoke, menthol and mocha. Juicy, fine-grained and concentrated; in an essentially tender style but with very good definition and lift. Lovely perfume and energy for 2009. Really resounds on the back end, with fine tannins dusting the entire palate. ..90-93" IWC 1/11 "The 2009 Corton “Pougets” is a ripe (but not overripe) example of the 2009 vintage that will be outstanding with sufficient bottle age. The black fruity nose offers up scents of black cherries, dark chocolate, stony minerality, coffee bean, game and new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and packed at the core with pure black fruit, with ripe tannins, lovely focus and fine length and grip on the chewy finish. This will probably be quite 1990-like in profile at its apogee. 2022-2075. 92+." John Gilman a View from the Cellar 1/11

  Maison Louis Jadot is a winery that’s proud of its heritage and land. Founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, Maison Jadot expanded rapidly, taking northern Europe by storm. When his son, Louis Jean Baptiste, took over in 1900, more change took place, and many vineyards were acquired, including Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles. With the help of Rudy Kopf, founder of the Kobrand Corporation, Maison Jadot expanded even further, setting up shop in both England and the U.S. In 1985, Madame Jadot sold the company to Rudy Kopf’s family, ensuring a successful future for the company. The land is very important to Maison Louis Jadot, and making the terroir shine through is always a priority. Maison Jadot identifies with its Burgundy heritage, and all wines are Appellation Contrôlée. The winery controls about 380 acres of land in Burgundy, including Côte d'Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Jacques Lardière, winemaster, works with Christine, Guillaume, and Audrey to ensure that the single-variety wines produced, including Pinot Noir for reds, Chardonnay for whites, and Gamay for Beaujolais, always produce the best, most consistent wines.

Fresh red berry fruit on the nose. Some mineral and earth, as well as lavender. Luscious berry filled palate of rich, ripe fruit. Good acid profile. Some light spice and herbal tones. Juicy, vibrant and rich, with lovely structure and good balance. Very nice! 3/8/12
