2018 Chinon, Les Varennes du Grand Clos, Domaine Charles Joguet

Les Varennes du Grand Clos is like a mini Clos de la Dioterie. It lies near the winery in the south of the Chinon appellation on deep clay-limestone soils with colluvial topsoil. This typically shows great balance between tannins and acidity, and complexity. In 2018 it is floral, juicy, and completely delicious.

2018 Chinon, Les Varennes du Grand Clos, Domaine Charles Joguet
Domaine Charles Joguet

Domaine Charles Joguet is a name that will resonate with many who have enjoyed their remarkable wines from the 1980s. After a period in the wilderness during the ‘90s, the Domaine has returned to its very best under the dynamic team of current owner Anne-Charlotte Genet, and winemaker Kevin Fontaine. Charles was one of the first to spot the potential of individual plots in Chinon, and each of the domaine’s wines is carefully crafted to best show off its unique origins.
