Langlois-Chateau

Sancerre 2017

Loire Valley, France

100% Sauvignon Blanc, Langlois-Chateau’s serious and complex Sancerre undergoes a gentle pressing with selection from the best lots, and then is handled exclusively in stainless steel.

VINEYARD

Langlois-Chateau owns and manages 175 acres of the best AOC vineyards in the Loire Valley. The Langlois Sancerre AOC is grown on a mostly chalk terroir that has a hint of silex (flint), which produces a notable Sancerre that is a benchmark for the appellation, with brightness, intensity, depth and minerality. Langlois maintains a sustainable approach to vineyard management and holds the “Terra Vitis” certification.

WINEMAKING
