This wine is from the estate of Langlois Chateau, in Saumur situated in the heart of the Loire Valley. Grapes are sourced from 6 quality terroirs which largely consist of chalky soils, very favourable to the production of elegant wines.
The 19th Century Langlois Chateau has long had a fine reputation, but in the last 40 years significant Bollinger investment in both the vineyards and cellars has transformed the quality. Today they are one of the very finest producers in the region.
Chenin Blanc (at least 50%), Chardonnay & Cabernet Franc. The grapes come from mainly Saumur terroirs but also from Anjou and Touraine.
Winemaker François-Régis de Fougeroux uses handpicked grapes and only the first free run juice is used. During vinification the 3 grape varieties and individual vineyard or terroir sources are separated and fermented in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks, usually 10% of older Réserve wines are added to the final blend prior to the second fermentation. The wine is matured on its lees for a minimum of 24 months in the winery’s freestone cellars.
Fine bubbles, freshness and elegance, this Crémant de Loire Brut is perfect as an aperitif or at any celebration. Brilliant with crab salad or sushi.
