Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé NV is a blend of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% 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. The beautiful color is achieved from a 12-15 hour skin contact.
Langlois-Chateau owns and manages 175 acres of the best AOC vineyards in the Loire Valley. For their Crémants they have an intensely terroir-focused approach of drawing the best characteristics from 6 distinct vineyard areas and soil types in order to create complex and refined wines. The Crémant Rosé is hand-picked from 2 specific terroirs with chalky-clay soils perfectly suited to Cabernet Franc. Langlois maintains a sustainable approach to vineyard management and holds the “Terra Vitis” certification.
62% of the estate’s production is devoted to Crémant. These sparkling wines are treated far beyond category standards and at the level of only the very top Champagne producers. Grapes are hand harvested in small bins and pressed gently, aging is at least 18 months, and reserve wines are incorporated.
