Since it was founded by Charles Joguet in 1957, the domain has been seeking to highlight as best possible the Chinon terroirs (a combination of soil and microclimate), with a simple idea in mind: each wine is the expression of a particular terroir. 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? – Description from dvoristanac

  • C. Joguet Chinon les Petites Roches 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark purply color. Lots of berries on the nose, but also with a kind of annoying "olivy" scent. Lots of fun in the mouth. Fairly robust, but not over the top. Flavors include blackberry, tobacco, and some peppery spice. Tannin hits around the edge of the tongue. Olive that was detected in the nose is slightly noticeably at first, but,... Read More

  • C Joguet Chinon Cuvee Cure 2006

    Snoothrank:

    First nose on the elegance of barrel aged Medoc cru bourgeois. When shaken, reveals his northern origin of Cabernet Franc. Dominant crunchy red fruit, framed by a natural freshness of Cabernet Franc. On the palate, a bit of astringency (but not dry tannins). Robust body. Request another one to two years for the complexity to be revealed. Read More

  • Joguet Chinon Dioterie 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Oak, tobacco and pepper on the nose. Red fruit, earth, wood and some mineral flavors. Overall full bodied with well-rounded tannins and a spicy finish. Initially there was some astringency, but after breathing for 1.5-2 hours, the wine improved tremendously. Read More
