Product Description

Langlois-Chateau has a rich history as one of the leading producers in the Loire Valley. The winery was founded in 1885 by Edouard Langlois and Jeanne Chateau (hence the name). In 1973, the Champagne Bollinger family acquired the estate and significantly revitalized the vineyards and modernized the winery. Langlois-Chateau owns and manages 175 acres of the best AOC vineyards in the Loire Valley. 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. 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Langlois-Chateau’s best vineyards in the Sancerre AOC. This serious and complex Sancerre is a benchmark for the appellation, with brightness, intensity, depth and minerality. Fermentation: The grapes are hand and machine harvested from a selection of the best plots before being pressed gently with pneumatic presses. Fermentation takes place in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks. Tasting Note: Extremely expressive, with typical citrusy and exotic fruit notes on the nose; on the palate lovely balance, elegance and freshness.
