In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.
What The Critics Say
90-93/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"A hint of wood sets off ripe, fresh and complex aromas of violet, red currant and plenty of earth and sauvage influences. There is good richness to the velvety middle weight plus flavors that retain solid precision and vibrancy on the firm, moderately austere and wonderfully persistent mineral-laden finish. This is very Pougets in basic character which is to say that it's one of the more elegant if still muscular of the Corton grands crus." Drink 2026+
90-92/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Medium red. Sexy perfume of red cherry, rose petal and cinnamon, plus a touch of medicinal menthol. Rich and generous but classically dry and backward, communicating a strong impression of medicinal reserve. Finishes with broad, dusty, fine-grained tannins and excellent length and lift."
90-92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin
"The 2014 Corton Pougets Grand Cru has a light marine influence on the nose that laps against the redcurrant and cranberry fruit, just a touch of red plum in the background. The palate is supple and lithe in the mouth, the oak nicely integrated, quite minerally with good density and grip in the finish. It perhaps just lacks a little persistence, but it should age with style." Drink 2017 - 2032
