SKU: CHPortal18

Château Portal by Paul Herpe et Fils is an elegant, complex wine. Dark red fruit and spicy notes predominate while floral hints linger in the background. A lively mouth ushers in the luscious finish of cloves, licorice, and a touch of mocha. Relish the generous aftertaste, admirable length, and intensity of this robust red.

Meat or mushroom-based mains come alive when paired with Château Portal, as do meat or mushroom-based pasta and rice dishes.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Winemaker and owner Jerome Portal owns 30 hectares of vineyards near the villages of Oupia and Beaufort.
Production Notes
The grapes are hand-harvested and boxed while still in the vineyard to ensure the quality of the fruit. A portion of the harvest is vinified in the traditional way, in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The remainder is subjected to carbonic maceration.

Soili manages the commercial contacts and sales for these small domaines, ensuring greater exposure of their wines to France and the world.
