Domaine de la Haute Olive 2016 Chinon "Le Chêne Vert"

Le Chêne Vert is a name well known to lovers of Chinon, although few realize that Domaine Charles Joguet shares one hectare with another vigneron—Haute Olive! At 35 years of age, the vines are younger than those of Joguet and the exposure is also different, located on the south-south west hillside with an 18° slope. A light clay topsoil sits atop a limestone subsoil mixed with upper Turonian also known as millarge (yellow limestone). This Chinon is fermented in concrete and is aged for 10 months in new foudre.
