2012 Charles Joguet "Clos du Chêne Vert" Chinon

SKU #1229218 93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep, dark ruby with a dense core. Black cherry and blueberry aromas are complemented by cool, chalky verve. At once lush and bright, showing sublime breadth to the dark berry and mineral flavors. This stylish wine saturates the palate on the long finish, with suave tannins and a hint of herbal coolness pleading for patience. With only 12.5% alcohol, this Chinon proves that Cabernet Franc does not need to be overripe to bring forth great wines. Inner quote mark (12/2014)
