Domaine Portail Cour Cheverny Blanc
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.
100% Romorantin, this is an ancient varietal that is only farmed by a few producers. It’s a lovely textured wine and is a perfect pairing with roasted chicken and roasted vegetables. Beautiful yellow color with gold flecks. A fleshy wine with aromas of white flowers, apple and pear. A well-balanced and harmonious wine with bright acidity and a long finish.
