Country Of Origin: France

In 1912, Edouard Langlois, a winemaker and cellarman and his wife Jeanne Chateau founded the family company Maison Langlois-Chateau at St-Hilaire-St-Florent, with the help of Baron de Bodman, owner of Chateau de St-Florent and the adjoining vineyard. Langlois-Chateau specialized immediately in the production of sparkling wines. During World War I Edouard Langlois was killed in 1915 and awarded the Croix de Guerre (Military Cross).

His young widow took over the management of the business, later aided by her son-in-law, Maurice Leroux and her son, Alexis. In 1973, Maison Bollinger, a family enterprise at Ay-Champagne, recognized the quality of Langlois-Chateau wines and acquired majority ownership. Michel Villedey, a son-in-law of the Bollinger family and also from Saumur, became president of the firm assisted by Jean Leroux, son of Maurice. The Chateau Langlois Coat of Arms show a castle, referring to Jeanne Chateau's surname; a leopard, emblem of the Anglo-Angevins because Langlois means "the Englishman"; in Old French; and a Vendée “heart”, for the region of origin of Jeanne Chateau and Edouard Langlois’ mother.

The grapes used to make Cr�mant de Loire brut come from 6 quality terroirs: C�tes de Saumur, Coteaux de St L�ger, Puy Notre Dame, Bas Layon, Haut Layon and Montreuil Bellay all of which have predominantly chalky soils. The grapes are entirely hand-picked in small 25kg crates and a pneumatic press is used immediately after gathering (160kg of grapes gives 100l of juice) . During vinification grape varieties and terroir are seperated in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks and it is the taste of the clear, unblended wines which determines the final mix (the best vintages using around 10% of reserve wines). The second fermentation is drawn in the bottle and the wine is matured on the lees for a minimum of 24 months in the wineries freestone cellars.
