Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: The Best Affordable Sparkling Wine

February 18, 2020

Forbes Magazine lifestyle contributor Gina Price, who covers great cocktails, beer and wine — and where to drink them, features Langlois Chateau Crémant de Loir Brut NV in her recent article providing insight to the best affordable sparkling wine for Valentine’s Day. Although champagne might be the first choice for a romantic Valentine’s date, it can be quite the splurge to get a quality bottle. Price advises that although Champagne is in a league of its own, there are other outstanding sparkling wines that are more budget conscience choices.

 

Among the eight wallet-friendly selections, Langlois Chateau Crémant de Loir Brut receives a standout review “The Bollinger family, behind Champagne Bollinger, bought this property in the Loire Valley in the early 1970s and started producing this Crémant (French sparkling wine made outside of the Champagne region) to Champagne stands. It’s aged for three years, which gives the wine it’s tiny bubbles, depth and complexity”

    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.
