Charles Joguet Chinon Clos de la Cure 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Clos de la Cure is situated on the left bank of the Vienne river in the commune of Sazilly, the vines are an average age of 35 and are grown on limestone and gravel. This cuvee can be kept for an average of 5-6 years and offers a wine of character affirmed by a relatively light upbringing in oak that rounds its tannins. 'How gourmet! Dense substance supported by supple, unctuous tannins. Ample in the mouth with black fruits, blackcurrant, spices and cloves. Beautiful length.'

In this way, one can also distinguish between vines of different ages. Why lose the freshness of a young vine by mixing it with the stronger tannins of an old vine? Read less
