Domaine Le Portail Cheverny Rouge
Domaine Le Portail, once a monastery, is now a family-owned wine estate, run by Delphine and Damien Cadoux. Planted on siliceous clay soil, Domaine Le Portail consists of 32 hectares of vineyards, two of which grow the rare and ancient Rormarantin grape in the Cour-Cheverny Appellation. The vines are cultivated and vinified the traditional way to preserve their authenticity and promote the terroir, producing aromatic and refined wines.
This is a blend of Pinot Noir (75%) and Gamay (25%). Beautiful light ruby-purple color with red fruit aromas and distinctive pepper spice notes. Elegant and smooth, the wine exhibits classic Loire Valley red wine characteristics.
