Champalou Vouvray Clos du Portail 2013

Member Review by steve1000:

This dry Vourvray (Chenin Blanc) from Champalou is quite consistently delicious, but the 2005 is a step above that. It's not a wine that knocks you over the head--but give it a few minutes and it will win you over with it's ripe pear fruit, excellent acid-balance and a remarkably graceful texture. Easy to drink by itself, a real crowd-pleaser, and nice weight for a wine of this type. If your wine philosophy is "RED ONLY--BIGGER THE BETTER" this wine can start your healing.
