1990 Joguet Chinon Clos de la Dioterie

Posted by CrushWine

On the nose, the white ash of a burned-out fire, with green raspberry fruit, and herbal and slight barnyard notes, and a breath of florality.

It is a lovely light-medium weight in the mouth and on the palate the wine has a beautiful warmth and an elegant, soft silkiness. Any tannins that were once present have softened completely.

The wine starts with a mouthful of wet white ash earthyness, but the midpalate is where the wine stars, with fruit reminiscent of older burgundy and an earthy sweetness that kicks in leading to a finish leaves no doubt its Cabernet Franc - a perfect partner to a falafel tabouleh sandwich.
