Louis Jadot Corton-Pougets "Domaines Heretiers" 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Corton Pougets Grand Cru from Louis Jadot has a dark and broody bouquet, and yet it is well defined with subtle marine notes filtering through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, the acidity well judged leading to a structured, quite masculine, almost Pommard-like finish that has good sustain. This is a well crafted Corton with plenty of matière, though I would be inclined to leave it for three or four years." *-Wine Advocate (92 Points)*

  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.
