Chinon - Les Charmes 2009

Out of stock

The opinion of the wine taster

This great bottle testifies the renewal of the winery Charles Jouquet located at Chinon. The grape variety 100% cabernet franc, with its notes of spices, perfectly matches a juicy grilled steak.                      

The terroir

Chinon, located in the hearth of the Loire Valley, is a small and prestigious vineyard. It extends over approximately 5700 acres, divided into nineteen villages. The vines are exposed to two main types of soil:
1/ The gravel terraces, which give us light and flavourful wines called “Easter wine” or “Spring wine”.
2/ The limestone and clayey-siliceous slopes give us wines that can be kept for years. This wine comes from this side of vineyard.

lecepageThe grape variety

The only grape variety of this wine is the cabernet franc. It has a medium-dark appearance, fine tannins and aromas of red fruits and spices. It’s well known for his spicy flavour of red pepper.

lemillesime The vintage

A good year, started with a dry and warm spring and a vibrant flower bloom. The summer was hot and dry, followed by some rain showers in September, right at the end of the grape growth. The harvest started at the beginning of October under the fall sunlights

lerecoltant The winemaker

Before opening a winery, Chales Joguet was a painter. He has been between the first winemakers in the Loire region to adopt the enclosed winemaking, that consists in dividing the vine in smaller areas and vinifying separately the grape coming from each section.
