100% Cabernet Franc and the colour is incredibly striking – Blood orange / copper.  Both the nose and the palate evoke a big bowl of summer fruits – strawberries and raspberries, although the acidity is present to add balance and freshness. The additional bottle age adds depth and complexity which is often missing with Rosé wines. Wonderful persistency, much preferred over MIP’s ‘Classic’ and a steal at the price...

Producer

Domaine Langlois-Chateau really is a fantastic producer from Saumur in the Loire Valley who specialise in creating wine from two unique grape varieties – Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Established in 1912 by Edouard Langlois and his young wife Jeanne Chateau, the Domaine was taken over by Champagne Bollinger in 1973 in whose hands it still remains. With such illustrious ownership it’s clear to see why the wines exude elegance and class.

Langlois-Chateau

Region

At 1000km the Loire is the longest river valley in France, meandering through varied terrain that is reflected in the region's broad range of wine styles. At 70,000 hectares it is France's 4th largest area under vine and includes several French wine regions including Muscadet, Sancerre, Pouilly Fumé and Vouvray to name just a few. The predominant grape varieties in the Loire Valley are Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc for white wines and Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc for reds and rosé's.
