About this video

We had the pleasure of speaking live with François-Régis de Fougeroux, General Manager, and Laurent Onillon, Commercial Director, of Langlois-Chateau.  While we could not be with them in person, they both showed us around the property’s boutique and vineyards.

In addition to providing a brief winery history, they both shared fantastic details on their stunning Crémants and Sancerre – including their rigorous quality control standards in the vineyards and in the cellar. Of course, the conversation would not be complete without touching on the impact that COVID-19 is having on their business.

VINTUS’ Anthony Cohen moderated the interview and surprised us all with an original song he wrote and sang in honor of Langlois-Chateau. We promise this will make you smile, so please go ahead and watch the full video (his song comes on at the very end!).

    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'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.

    Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé NV is a blend of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Pinot Noir. This bright and juicy Crémant is hand crafted with the same process and attention to detail as the best Champagne, with only the first pressed (“cuvée”) juice used and 18 months aging on the lees to preserve freshness and color.

    Langlois-Chateau is the "Tête de Crémant." The Crémants are the focus of the estate, accounting for 62% of the estate's production, making Langlois-Chateau the leader of Loire sparkling wine. It’s a case of quantity and quality with the production 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.
