Corton Pougets Grand Cru 2014
This wine has incredible depth and generosity, rich fruit and powerful structure that will develop breath-taking complexity with age.
Louis Jadot purchased this great vineyard in 1914; it faces south and consistently produces wines with incredible depth and generosity.
Conditions for 2014 started well before a violent hailstorm in June hit several communes in the Mâcon and Côte d'Or with devastating effects. Summer then continued to be unsettled but a period of dry weather in September returned the available grapes to good health and the grapes were harvested from 11th September onwards resulting in expressive red wines with intense freshness and elegant tannins.
This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and then aged 18-20 months in oak barrels before bottling.
- Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
