2019 Chinon, Clos de la Dioterie, Charles Joguet

2019 Chinon, Clos de la Dioterie, Charles Joguet

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.

Tasting notes

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.
