The Crémant classification is a great alternative to Champagne, turning local varieties into superb sparkling wines made in the traditional method.
The grapes used to make this Crémant de Loire brut come from 6 quality terroirs: Côtes de Saumur, Coteaux de St Léger, Puy Notre Dame, Bas Layon, Haut Layon and Montreuil Bellay all of which have predominantly chalky soils. The grapes are entirely hand-picked in small 25kg crates and a pneumatic press is used immediately after gathering (160kg of grapes gives 100l of juice) .
During vinification grape varieties and from the various terroirs are seperated in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and it is the taste of the clear, unblended wines which determines the final mix (the best vintages using around 10% of reserve wines). The second fermentation is drawn in the bottle and the wine is matured on the lees for a minimum of 24 months in the wineries freestone cellars.
“…the exemplary Langlois-Chateau Crémant de Loire Brut NV, a strikingly fine sparkler from Saumur. Blended from Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, it’s as fine a non-champagne French fizz as you’ll find. And given that it’s owned by Bollinger you still get a touch of Champenois stardust.”
