Domaine Louis Jadot (Domaine des Héritiers), Corton Pougets Grand Cru 1995

Jadot Corton Pougets 1995 #1

Fullish crimson.  Expressive and classy on the nose: a pure, fresh basket of red berry fruit.  Nuanced touches of game, oleander, allspice and smoke.  On the palate, medium-full body, both intense and defined: citrus peel, rose hips and a still mentholated cherry.  Sinewy athletic like many of the Jadot grand crus; this one is a distance runner.  Fine-grained, forward tannins. Definitive grip.  Long and articulate stone minéralité at the end.  A Corton with breed and finesse.  Now – 2025+.
