It’s A Baby Bollinger!
Our price is $38.95 in Dozens Only
Crémant de Loire
At $38.95/in dozens it really is a bargain for the quality of this wine.
The family doesn’t like us using “Baby Bollinger” but that’s how we see it. It’s not as controversial as the submarines – we are not renigging on purchasing this sparkling. Yet the same care goes into this Brut as does the more expensive Bollinger Champagne – so why not? Viva la difference!
VINEYARD GRAPE VARIETIES: Chenin Blanc (at least 50%) Chardonnay & Cabernet Franc
TERROIRS: The grapes come from mainly Saumur terroirs but also from Anjou and Touraine: sand-limestone, clay-limestone & shale.
HARVEST: Harvested entirely by hand in pierced crates. Pneumatic pressing a few hours after harvesting. Juice selection during pressing separating « Cuvées » and « Tailles ».
VINIFICATION: Vinification by grape variety and terroir in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. Tasting of clear parcel wines to determine the blend. Maturing using the « Méthode Traiditionnelle » (secondary fermentation in the bottle). Aging on lees for at least 24 months. DOSAGE: Brut (12g/l)
DÉGUSTATION: Robe pale yellow. Nose complex with white flowers, lime, hawthorn and green apples. Fresh, delicate and refined.
AGING POTENTIAL: 3 to 5 years. But drink it now. It’s already got a few years in the bottle, while it’s young and fresh.
IDEAL SERVING TEMPERATURE: 8 to 10°C
FOOD & WINE PAIRING: Its freshness, its fine bubbles and its elegance make Langlois Crémant de Loire Blanc Brut a reception wine par excellence, aperitif, cocktail dinner… It will also accompany apple and pear pies, pies or even a pear-chocolate crumble…
What does Crémant mean? Originally it meant a certain style of wine produced in the method champenoise – that is, made in the traditional way and fermented in the bottle. The term also refers to sparkling wine from France other than Champagne, which has fewer bubbles than Champagne and is deliciously creamy.
