Domaine Langlois Chateau Saumur Rouge is a red wine made from 100% Cabernet Franc in the Loire.
In 1973, Maison Bollinger, a family enterprise at Aÿ-Champagne, recognized the quality of Domaine Langlois Chateau’s wines and acquired majority ownership. Langlois Chateau subsequntly experienced rapid growth, adding to the capacity of its cellars, creating vineyards at Saumur, Saumur-Champigny, and Sancerre (currently 73 hectares), and increasing its commercial investments. In 1982, Bernard Leroux produced the first vintage of the wine which was to be the Domaines of Langlois-Chateau red and white. Since then, and as a result of the success that it has had, Langlois-Chateau has increased its vineyard holding in the Saumur area and consistantly increased the quality of the wines.
Domaine Langlois Chateau Saumur Rouge is produced with fruit from vineyards in Coudray-Macouard and St-Florent (a total of 20 hectares). Grapes are harvested mechanically followed by a manual selection. Following the harvest, the grapes were totally de-stemmed and then undergo maceration in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks. Each plot is vinified separately. Fermentation is also in stainless steel. The wine is matured in tank and bottled in the spring following the harvest.
Winemaker is François-Régis de Fougeroux.
