Langlois-Chateau Château de Fontaine-Audon Sancerre 2019 (93 W&S)

“Chateau de Foutaine-Audon is in the northwest end of the appellation, its 37 acres of vines planted in a band of silex soils on a south facing slope. The aromas perhaps owing to those silex soils, suggest grilled whole grapefruit, while layers of floral notes transition into a deep core of orange kumquat. The acidity keeps it lifted, sustains the wine’s succulence and depth with a refreshing, high-tone spice.”

    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.
