This vineyard lies right next to the domaine and was the first single vineyard that Charles Joguet focused on. Its north-east facing slope and old vines planted on clay-limestone soils produce a wine with outstanding energy, and spicy density. Profoundly deep but with no heaviness. There is such a sweet intensity to the Cabernet Franc fruit, and a mouthwatering salinity.
The 2019 Clos de la Dioterie is a round and ripe style that retains a sense of density and broodiness and plentiful oak-derived vanilla. The tannins are lightly edgy and abundant, coating the mouth with a firm clasp. There's always a mysterious, brooding element to the Clos de la Dioterie, which will require bottle age to come around. But it has the structural components and fresh acidity to go on and on.
