Detailed Information

Domaine Charles JOGUET is located in the heart of the Loire Valley, in the small and prestigious wine region of Chinon.

The Domaine dates back to 1985, when Charles JOGUET and Jacques GENET decided to develop a partnership, binging with them their vineyards, respectively founded in 1957 & 1979.

It is the king of grapes in Touraine, where it is commonly known as "Breton"- pronounced "bur-tawn" with a slightly rolled "r".

Very few wines in the world are made from pure Cabernet Franc. As it suffers from extreme heat, it is usually grown in temperate regions. It can only develop its flavours and delicacy in stable climatic conditions.

The invariably mild temperatures of the Loire valley suit it marvellously. They allow Chinon wines to develop wonderfully fruity and floral aromas, from wild straberry, raspberry, and redcurrant to violet, wallflower, and peony.

The harvests generally start at the beginning of October, after a miticulous follow up of the maturation of each plot.

Each year, the harvests - done by hand - require an experienced team of sixty pickers. Sorting is done at the foot of the vine and only perfectly mature bunches are chosen, the rest naturally being rejected. Grape picker empty their buckets into small crates, grapes are then transported in small quantities, and are quickly conveyed to the winery, where an arsenal of stainless steel equipment is ready for the last grape sorting operations.

Each clos and each nature of terroir are vinified separately
