Langlois-Chateau Chateau de Fontaine-Audon Sancerre 2016 (90 JD)

“The 2016 Sancerre Fontaine-Audon (100% Sauvignon Blanc) comes all from silex terroirs and was brought up entirely in stainless steel. It offers a beautiful sense of minerality to go with clean, crisp notes of citrus fruits. With medium to light body, a great mid-palate, and a layered texture, it’s one classy Sancerre to drink over the coming couple of years.” – Jeb Dunnuck

    The crown jewel of Langlois’ Sancerre holdings is at Château de Fontaine-Audon, a 37-acre vineyard from which they produce a single-vineyard Sancerre of the same name. 100% Sauvignon Blanc grown entirely on silex (flint) terroir, Langlois-Chateau’s single-vineyard Sancerre undergoes a gentle pressing, is fermented in stainless steel and then is kept on its lees for 6 months until bottling in April.

    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 Méthode Champenoise wines of incredible finesse. The still Sancerres are equally notable and are benchmarks for the appellation, with brightness, intensity, depth and minerality.
