Chinon Clos de la Dioterie, Charles Joguet (magnum) - 2018

  • Provenance: Loire
  • Appellation: Chinon
  • Domain: Charles Joguet
  • Grape variety(ies): Cabernet franc
  • On-call time: 50 years
  • Style of wine: Vin de grand terroir
  • Alcohol degree: 14%
This mythical clos (it was planted with vines one or two centuries before 1789!) is at its best. And 2018 is one of the great successes of the last thirty years: we love the aromatic blackness of this bloody but septentrional vintage (liquorice, black berries, graphite), dense and full-bodied, juicy, very long in the mouth. To be cellared and brought out again in 15-20 years. Don't forget the magnums!

Viticulture

Located right next to the winery, it overlooks the Varennes du Grand Clos. This vineyard of just over two hectares is astonishing for the age of its vines (70 to 80 years old), but also for its highly calcareous clay soil and its north-east exposure, ideal for perfect ripeness. These very old vines with low yields (30 hl/ha) are the object of particularly attentive care.

Oenology

This is the last parcel to be harvested, as it faces north-east. The maceration period and the vatting are similar to those of the Varennes, and are done in wooden vats since 2008. Pumping over and punching down. Alcoholic fermentation is sometimes followed by malolactic fermentation on the marc. A prolonged ageing in barrels of 1 to 3 wines (12 to 15 months) finishes refining this wine of a rare personality.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Game birds - Roast guinea fowl - Offal.
