Wine Spectator, April 2019
Deep, rich and spicy, this red evokes a pleasant earthiness underlying the cherry and strawberry fruit. Firm tannins uphold the long aftertaste, while overall there is harmony and complexity.

Firm tannins uphold the long aftertaste, while overall there is harmony and complexity. Fresh, juicy finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 525 cases made.–BS

The 2016 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is excellent, unwinding in the glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of ripe cherries, wild berries and bergamot, complemented by savory bass notes of mossy forest floor, espresso roast and grilled squab. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and tight-knit, with excellent amplitude and dimension, fine-grained but firm structuring tannins and a penetrating, mineral finish. The potential here is very fine indeed but this is not a wine for those seeking immediate gratification and a decade of patience will be in order. - William Kelley

The Pougets is one of the stars of the Jadot range in 2016, leaping from the glass with a deep bouquet of sapid black fruit, mossy soil, roasted game, coffee and game bird. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, bright and concentrated, with a deep core of fruit, supple tannins and superb energy on the long, penetrating finish.

(91-93 points) (Jadot has four different vine ages in this grand cru and replants one-quarter of the surface every 20 or 25 years, according to Barnier, who added that no replanting is scheduled for the next decade or so... (91-93 points) (Jadot has four different vine ages in this grand cru and replants one-quarter of the surface every 20 or 25 years, according to Barnier, who added that no replanting is scheduled for the next decade or so; as with the Corton Grèves, the crop level was normal here in '16): Bright, dark red. Aromas of cherry, spices and soil convey a slight medicinal reserve and a pungent mineral nuance. Concentrated, savory and pliant; still a touch medicinal but with lovely subtle sweetness and expanding inner-mouth floral perfume, not to mention harmonious acidity. Finishes juicy and suavely tannic, with sneaky persistence. -- Stephen Tanzer

The... 93 +Happily, with the frosts in Aloxe-Corton further down the hill of Corton, the Pougets from Maison Jadot was untouched by the freeze and the 2016 is going to be an outstanding vintage of this superb bottling. The bouquet is deep, pure and refined, offering up scents of cherries, red currants, bonfire, venison, coffee, a complex base of soil tones, cedar and a fine, spicy topnote. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and very soil-driven in personality, with a rock solid core, ripe, seamless tannins and perfect balance on the long and nascently complex finish. This is a complete wine in every respect and simply needs some time in the cellar to start to blossom.

(91-93) Strong wood/menthol influence frames red and dark currant aromas that are liberally laced with spice and earth hints. As is usually the case, the mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is much finer than that of either the Grèves or the Clos du Roi but less concentrated while offering excellent depth and length on the saline finish.
