Langlois-Chateau Château de Fontaine-Audon Sancerre 2018 (90 JD)

“The 2018 Sancerre Château de Fontaine-Audon is a charming, nicely balanced, medium-bodied effort offering pretty white peach and citrus fruits as well as some classic Loire sappy herb and minerality, nicely integrated yet racy acidity and a clean, crisp finish. Drink this impeccably made, versatile Sancerre over the coming 2-4 years.”

    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.
