Wine of the Week: 2015 Charles Joguet Chinon Silènes Cabernet Franc
The Joguet Estate continues to impress and fly under the radar – this is traditional Chinon at it’s best, from thirty-year old Cab Franc vines in Beaumont-en-Véron in the Loire Valley. Aged in stainless steel and nicely weighted with red currants, cassis, charcuterie, some firm tannins, and a lovely lift. This is definitely the most approachable of the Joguet cuvées, but it still holds an immense depth of flavour (and huge amounts of general deliciousness as per usual!).
