A blend of Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay, this is a round, mouthfilling sparkling wine with ripe apple flavors layered with grapefruit acidity and a tight, final texture that is crisp and mineral. Founded in 1885 by Edouard Langlois and Jeanne Chateau (hence the name), Langlois-Chateau has a rich history as one of the leading producers in the Loire Valley. In 1973, the Bollinger family invested in Langlois, significantly revitalizing the vineyards and modernizing the cellar. Bollinger was naturally attracted by Langlois’ Cremant de Loire production, but 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. For their Cremants they have an intensely terroir-focused approach of drawing the best characteristics from 6 distinct vineyard areas and soil types in order to create complex and refined wines. The crown jewel of their Sancerre holdings is at Chateau de Fontaine-Audon, from which they produce a single-vineyard Sancerre of the same name. Langlois maintains a sustainable approach to vineyard management and holds the “Terra Vitis” certification.
