Founded in 1912, Maison Langlois-Chateau is located in St-Hilaire-St-Florent in the Loire Valley and has specialized in producing fine sparkling wines from its beginnings. The Langlois family was joined in ownership with Maison Bollinger from Champagne in 1973. Bollinger, another family enterprise, is located at Aÿ-Champagne and world renowned for producing high quality Champagne. Bollinger recognized the quality of Langlois-Chateau sparkling wines and acquired majority ownership, thus contributing its financial resources as well as its agencies in France and abroad. Michel Villedey, a son-in-law of the Bollinger family and also from Saumur, became president of the firm, assisted by Jean Leroux, son of Maurice.

This Crémant de Loire Blanc Brut is made of 60% Chenin Blanc. 20% Chardonnay and 20% Cabernet Franc. The grapes come from 6 high quality terroirs : – Côtes de Saumur : chalky-silico – Coteaux de St Léger : chalk – Puy Notre Dame : chalky-clay – Bas Layon : schist – Haut Layon : chalky-clay – Montreuil Bellay : chalky-clay. This lovely, polished and fresh Crémant is hand crafted with the same process and attention to detail as the best Champagne, with only the “cuvée” juice used and extended 36-month aging on the lees. The freshness, fine bubbles and elegance of Langlois Crémant de Loire white Brut make it an excellent wine for parties, receptions and ceremonies, at a very reasonable price. Langlois also farms with a sustainable approach and hold Terra Vitis certification which is excellent for the expression of terroir and purity of fruit flavor.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a ripe, creamy blend of Chenin Blanc, with 20% Chardonnay and 20% Cabernet Franc. Aged on its lees for 20 months, it has a smooth, open mousse, fine, full pear fruit flavors and a touch of mature toast. It is delicious, ripe and elegant.
