2019 Chinon, Clos du Chêne Vert, Domaine Charles Joguet

This parcel is quintessential Chinon: at the top of the hill overlooking the Loire river, its flood plains, and the charming eponymous town. It is named after the huge and statuesque oak tree that grows at its edge. Its excellent position affords it good ripening and drainage. The soil here is clay and sandstone, and produces a wine with a pretty red fruit structure, and some distinctively spicy notes. In 2019 it has harmonious balance, a little lighter in weight than the Varenne and Dioterie, it has this amazing freshness to the fruit.

2019 Chinon, Clos du Chêne Vert, 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.
