Charles Joguet Chinon Clos de la Dioterie 2015
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Chinon|
Aromas of iron and cedar introduce this complex and graceful red, with a silky texture and great harmony overall. Flavors of blackberry and tobacco mingle at the core, while sage and rose notes add to the charm. Very long and multilayered, this should be long-lived. Drink now through 2029.
The domaine's oldest vines have produced a rich, concentrated wine packed with all the smoky, red-fruit flavors of ripe Cabernet Franc. It is still firm, but the structure has opened into a generous ripeness that suggests the wine will be ready to drink from 2021.
