Château Moncontour overlooks the Loire River, and extends over the hillsides in the heart of the Vouvray appellation. The site boasts stunning views over the whole Loire Valley area.
Since 1994, the Feray family has been preserving and enhancing the Château with enthusiasm and commitment, making it one of the most remarkable historic sites in the Loire Valley.
The wine estate is one of the oldest in the Touraine region and now also features among the most prestigious in the Loire Valley. The estate spans 130 hectares, over hillsides and valleys.
In Cantonese cuisine, the most popular cooking preparation methods are steaming, stir-frying and roasting to bring out the best of ingredients. I was wondering how might we create a complementary pairing to enrich our dining pleasure, at home or in a restaurant. I stumbled upon this Chateau Moncontour from Vouvray - it is one of the oldest Chateau in Loire Valley.
This wine is fruity has a creamy texture and balanced acidity, which will enhance the delicacy of Cantonese dishes. Perfect for drinking on its own, it pairs incredibly well with white meat, chicken and steamed seafood dishes.

89 / 100 Wine Enthusiast 2007 - "A complex wine that is showing acidity, toast, fresh almond and spice. It has a firm layer of dryness that mingles with the crisp yellow fruits, tangerine zest and finishing acidity. Like so many fine Chenin Blanc, this needs to be age" - Roger Voss
