Domaine Louis Jadot (Domaine des Héritiers), Corton Pougets Grand Cru 1983

Jadot Pougets 1989

Mostly garnet now with touches of ochre, pink-orange rim.  Fully mature with a tilt towards pongy organics.  Compost, animale and sous-bois – indeed, this Pougets smells like us!  No goût de grêle, though, and these rather fetid aromatics peel back to reveal a wine of substance underneath.  Capacious fruit and nut character with a touch of velvet: raspberry eau de vie, nut-skin, citrus peel, white truffle, sweet meats.  Complex and vigorous at the end, finishing in a lapidary minerality.  A Corton Pougets of character and strength.  Given the vintage and bottle variation, however, it is difficult to recommend holding any of the ’83s back.  For drinking soon.
