Dry, generous and full-bodied Chenin Blanc, Le Portail will seduce you with both richness and sophistication. The grapes are harvested manually and then pressed immediately. The juice is then put into barrels in the double barrels (450 liter barrels). Le Portail ferments there and stays on its lees for 18 months.
Delicious with beautiful white meat or shellfish. It goes perfectly with subtle and refined spices such as cumin, coriander and also paprika. This wine also thrives with a cheese platter.
Both from wine growing families, Catherine and Didier embarked on this adventure in Vouvrillonne in 1983. Their desire for autonomy and freedom forced them to give life to the estate.
It all started with planting half a hectare of Chenin Blanc and waiting 3 years for the first harvest of the vine. This was followed by the first commercial contacts linked to the very first memorable bottling of Vouvray.
Currently 21 hectares of Chenin are cultivated according to sustainable viticulture. And a production of 120,000 bottles per year is distributed in about twenty countries around the world.
