Charles Joguet

Joguet is another jewel in the Kermit Lynch portfolio, the domaine is situated just between the Loire and Vienne Rivers in the AOC of Chinon. Vinified separately, according to parcel since the 1950's, the estate is now run by winemaker Kevin Fontaine and wines are divided into 2 categories: those meant for early consumption, and those meant to age.

Charles Joguet is the domaine that put Chinon on the map. Joguet liked Burgundy, especially how each itty bitty plot of land seemed to make distinct wine from its specific terroir. Joguet noticed that Chinon was a bit like that too: his great vineyards produced wines that were consistently distinct and delicious on their own, without any need of blending. He decided Cabernet Franc was a great grape variety, deserving of the full Burgundian treatment. Single vineyard Chinon was born, and the world became a better place.
