Tonight I have opened the Langlois Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé Langlois-Château. This wine is made up of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Pinot Noir two grapes I just adore.
The nose has strawberry, raspberry, cherry, Necco Wafers candy, herbs and wet gravel.
On the palate is strawberry, raspberry, cherry, red currant and a nice crushed limestone minerality.
The wine has a beautiful pink-salmon color and is medium bodied with a pleasingly smooth creaminess mouthfeel and medium + acidity that moves seamlessly into a refreshingly long crisp finish. Welcome to the weekend, please be safe and stay healthy. Nostrovia! 🍾🍾🍾🍾 — 15 days ago
Vintage 2015 | off dry Chenin Blanc with excellent balance and a smell that reveals new impressions every time you take the glass to your nose: honey and minerals are prominent | often a wine really expresses itself in combination with food. This Clos Habert is perfect with the peppery rilettes of local star butcher Jean Maurice Lejeune. Second day, with ham in aspic — 7 days ago
Baudry’s 2019 Chinon Rosé offers suave, mineral-accented aromas of fresh red berries and tangerine on the sharply focused nose. The palate is dry and energetic, with sappy strawberry, bitter cherry and orange zest flavors. Closes long and silky, with a faint touch of anise. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2020) — 12 days ago
Vintage 2018 | Smell with tropical fruit: passionfruit, lychee. A taste with citrus, good balance. Awesome p/q, I prefer this above mediocre Sancerre. Nice Sauvignon Blanc for lunch, with a tomato/mozzarella salad, with codfish and a oven zucchini dish. — 14 days ago
Drank over the course of three days; just like Mufasa, this fine drop from Anjou was dignified and imposing until the end. Surprised that any sniff of oxidation - and there was near none - was in reality a welcomed influence. Would happily order a case of this medium bodied blend of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon. A mouthful of ripe strawberries and plums, a little perfume, low acid (but enough so it wasn’t flabby), soft tannins with a slightly jammy concentration at the tail. Confident this would be a pleasure to have any day, at any hour, meal or no meal, friends or no friends, in bed, at a table, or on the floor. A beautiful wine beautifully made. Bravo J. C.
