Langlois-Chateau, Saumur

4.6
#3 of 13 in Wineries in Pays de la Loire
Sip and smile at Langlois-Chateau where sparkling wines are a specialty. The chateau was procured--and opened as a winery-- in 1912 by Edouard Langlois and his wife Jeanne Chateau. The couple enjoyed quick success with their sparkling wine, but production was interrupted by WWI and the death of Langlois. However, it wasn’t long before the bubbles were popping again at the chateau. Financial success allowed the property to begin an expansion that didn't end until 2009.

You’ll begin your tour at the School of Wine where you’ll learn about the wine-making processl. Then you’ll make a 300 m (984 ft) journey underground to the cellars to learn more about Langlois methods, and taste their famed Crémant de Loire. Walk around the exterior of the chateau to get a view of the vines in those abundant, sloping Loire Valley hills that draw visitors from all over the globe in pursuit of the perfect sparkling beverage.

    We had a great time with a young, dynamic and very funny guide who gave us his passion and his knowledge of wines. We had a smartbox and have a wine class, a tour of the cellars and tasting many wines of the region, as well as a package of 6 bottles. I really recommend!

    A pity that we couldn't join the tour as advance booking is required and it takes 1.5 hrs for it. We joined the wine tasting session instead and tried a few good wine.

    This Saumur vineyard specialises in sparkling wine but also delivers very good quality white and reds typical of the region. On our visit we took a tour with Michel Launay who proved to be a very charming and knowledgeable host. I thoroughly recommend you try the Cremant and for something different ask to try their Red Sparkling Carmen!
