Description

Langlois-Chateau has a rich history as one of the leading producers in the Loire Valley. Their Cremants are produced with standards far beyond the appellation requirements and even beyond Champagne AOC standards. The result is Methode Champenoise wines of incredible finesse. The still Sancerres are equally notable and are benchmarks for the appellation, with brightness, intensity, depth and minerality.

Founded in 1885 by Edouard Langlois and Jeanne Chateau. In 1973, the Bollinger family invested in Langlois, significantly revitalizing the vineyards and modernizing the cellar. The estate has become a leading quality producer in Sancerre, Saumur and other areas.

Langlois-Chateau owns and manages 175 acres of the best AOC vineyards in the Loire Valley. They have an intensely terroir-focused approach of drawing the best characteristics from 6 distinct vineyards areas and soil types in order to create and refined wines. Grapes are hand harvested in small bins, pressed gently, aging is at least 36 months (versus 12 month minimum), and reserve wines are incorporated. The crown jewel of their Sancerre holdings at Chateau de Fontain-Audon, from which they produce a single-vineyards Sancerre of the same name.

Langlois-Chateau’s Sancerres are serious and complex but also delicate and approachable. They’re benchmarks for the appellation. The grapes are from a selection of the best vineyard plots. They undergo a gentle pressing to extract the purest juice and are handled exclusively in stainless steel.

The Langlois-Chateau Sancerre presents a pale yellow robe, while the nose is fine and complex, revealing lemony citrus notes along with hints of white fruit. On the palate, the wine is ample and suave, characterized by a salt and rocky sensation. This Sancerre is well-paired with a variety of dishes, including smoked salmon, lobster, grilled fish, and prawn guacamole.
