At Château de Fontaine Audon in Sancerre, Langlois-Chateau continues to work the soils while carefully following social distancing rules in order to protect the team working the vines. Bud break is just beginning at the vineyards, with an imminent risk of frost in the coming days (temperature around 25°F). Everyone is keeping their fingers crossed and hoping for the best!
In the meantime, school cancellations and shelter-in-place mandates in France are no excuse not to continue childhood education at home. In this video, Laurent’s brilliant initiative (and English teaching skills) are put to the test!
Loire Valley, France
Langlois-Chateau is the "Tête de Crémant." The Crémants are the focus of the estate, accounting for 62% of the estate's production, making Langlois-Chateau the leader of Loire sparkling wine. It’s a case of quantity and quality with the production standards far beyond the appellation requirements and even beyond Champagne AOC standards. The result is Méthode Champenoise wines of incredible finesse. The still Sancerres are equally notable and are benchmarks for the appellation, with brightness, intensity, depth and minerality.
