Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot, Corton-Pougets Grand Cru 2011, Beaune, France
Bottle Note: An enjoyable pinot noir with some complexity.
This ruby-colored red burgundy has a nose of candied red cherry (70%), red plum (20%) and under-ripe raspberry (10%) – a very pleasing aroma blend.
This light- to medium-bodied pinot noir is medium in acidity and tannin and has a smooth, chalky finish.
On the palate chalk almost overwhelms the fruit on the attack but eventually catches up before reaching the finish.
