Buy Jadot Corton Pougets
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.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The Jadot 2006 Corton Pougets reflects Corton at its strictest, purest, and most mineral. A dense sense of chalkiness is threaded with veins of tart red raspberry fruit, but firm - albeit fine - tannins heighten a sense of austerity, and this finishes with rectitude and penetration. The makings of a superb wine are here, if this loosens up and becomes more diversely expressive. I would think about revisiting it sometime in 2011 in order to have better perspective on its potential.  (Dec 2009)

Wine Spectator 90 points - A powerful, expansive Corton whose firm structure lifts the cherry, spice and mineral flavors. A little dry on the finish, but there's a lot of sweet fruit. Best from 2012 through 2021. 200 cases imported. –BS (May 31 2009)

Winemaker's Notes
In the commune of Aloxe-Corton, in the northern end of the Côte de Beaune, more than half of the vineyard area is Grand Cru vineyards. The Grand Cru vineyard of Les Pougets is adjacent to Le Charlemagne on the mid- and upper slope on varied soils of chalk and iron-rich marl. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured for 18 to 20 months in oak barrels.

This powerfully structured, rich-fruited wine offers deep, layered berry and oak aromas and flavors, and a persistent finish. It should be held for 5 years in bottle before being opened, and will develop for 15 to 20 years in the cellar.

Serve with roasts or highly seasoned meats, game and most cheeses.
