This superb vineyard is treasured in the Jadot range. Ideally situated on the hill of Corton, this parcel is planted to chardonnay in the upper portion and pinot noir in the lower where the wine is known as Corton-Pougets Grand Cru. Full, robust, and long-lived these wines are classicly traditional and reference fine Burgundy of years ago. Jadot is now the only producer of Corton-Pougets red.

Harvest Note
The 2021 vintage was memorable for the extreme challenges it posed to growers. The defining event was a hard freeze in April which lasted several days, and the subsequent dramatic reduction in harvest volumes. Added to this were cool and wet summer conditions which required constant vigilance. The delayed harvest eventually yielded tiny volumes of pristine grapes which express a vibrant and energetic purity.
Tasting Note
Full-bodied and ripe, Corton-Pougets exhibits a lovely leafy and woodsy top note supported by intense red berry fruit and hints of sweet oak. Tannic and chewy when young, after only a few years the texture becomes more rounded and supple, yet will continue to develop for several decades.
Food Pairing
Ideal with full-bodied and expressive meat dishes whether grilled or roasted. Also accompanies anything with truffles or mushrooms, or aged cheeses.
