Charles Joguet 2013 Chinon Clos de la Dioterie

  • Sale
  • Regular price $60.00

The great Dioterie vineyard, on the white chalk slopes of Sazilly along the Vienne River, is on the opposite side of the river from Chinon’s most famous terroirs. It produces, with great regularity, a Cabernet Franc that is very dark in robe, structured, blue- and black-fruited, and muscular. It has an uncanny ability to age, as the bottles we have tasted from the seventies and eighties so adamantly attest.

Prolonged aging in 1-3 year-old barrels for 12-15 months
