Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Charles Joguet "Clos du Chêne Vert" Chinon. David Schildknecht writes: "Charles Joguet personally retired from winemaking nearly a decade ago. Less than two years ago, his long-time right-hand, Michel Pinard, turned over vineyard and cellar direction to seven-year veteran Francois-Xavier Barc. The best of the current crops here are highly satisfying and Barc is clearly quality-conscious, harboring impressive intentions for the future evolution of this traditionally bench-mark estate. Several fruitier reds from alluvial and gravel soils are raised in tank, and those from better sites undergo malolactic fermentation and maturation in barrels of assorted age."
This lot contains the following items:
