Sancerre 2013 Langlois-Chateau
Item Number: 79 10 115 13
Edouard Langlois and his wife Jeanne Chateau founded their winemaking estate in 1885. Later generations carefully expanded the estate, building one of the finest and most representative vineyard holdings in the Loire Valley. Langlois-Chateau is renowned for its Sancerre, a superb, elegant Sauvignon Blanc varietal produced with fruit from estate vineyards as well as from growers with long term relationships with the Chateau. Much of the crop of Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in the flinty "silex" soil. The wine is handcrafted at low temperatures, resulting in a crisp finish, with gooseberry and mineral flavors.
