Charles Joguet Chinon les Petites Roches France Loire Touraine Chinon 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A really fine Chinon with darker fruit than may be typical. Almost curranty fruit marries with tobacco, ancho chili, crushed violets, and potting soil in a plush styled wine with good acidity and supporting tannins that gives this a wonderful mouthfeel. The finish continues the theme with a bit more pronounced acidity refreshing the palate and pushing the fruit more towards the red end of the spectrum. Very fresh yet very ripe and very difficult to finish the entire bottle. 90pts

One should not mask the nature of the various terroirs by blending their juices, but instead enhance them through separate vinification. 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
