Langlois-Chateau’s Sancerres are serious and complex but also delicate and approachable. They’re benchmarks for the appellation. The grapes are from a selection of the best vineyard plots. They undergo a gentle pressing to extract the purest juice and are handled exclusively in stainless steel.

VINEYARD

Langlois-Chateau owns and manages 175 acres of the best AOC vineyards in the Loire Valley. The Sancerre AOC has a chalk and flint terroir, which produces a notable Sancerre with brightness, intensity, depth and minerality. Langlois- Cheateau maintains a sustainable approach to vineyard management and holds the “Terra Vitis” certification.

WINEMAKING

The grapes are both hand and machine harvested. They’re then pressed pneumatically and fermented in small temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

Reviews

"Elegantly rendered Sauvignon"

Decanter -

"Pristine aromas of nettles, fresh lime and gooseberry emerge in stately fashion from this elegantly rendered Sauvignon. Langlois-Chateau is based in Saumur but makes wines all across the Loire. This Sancerre is serious and dry, with fresh acidity and stoney, lime-streaked flavors."
