Domaine SYLVAIN LANGOUREAU

Saint Aubin

We have been working with Langoureau for three years now and their range has proved very popular, combining ripe balanced fruit with quality Cote D’Or Chardonnay which offer exceptional quality and value.

Background

Sylvain has been in charge since 1989, working closely with his wife Nathalie. Together they have quietly built the reputation of the domaine, producing terroir focussed lively whites from some of St Aubin’s best sites. The domaine also owns vineyards in Chassagne and Puligny and produce an excellent Aligoté, the 2015 of which is drinking beautifully now. Now fully organic, the domaine is worked by hand, vines are pruned to give low yields and grass grows between the rows. In the winery fermentations occur with natural yeasts and new oak is used sparingly. Sylvain and Nathalie want to clearly transmit their various climats, free from invasive flavours. Absolutely a domaine to watch as St Aubin continues to prove a happy hunting ground for top quality white burgundy at drinkable prices.

Saint Aubin2016
A rarely seen 1er Cru from a vineyard in a side valley, with cooling winds contrasting with a sunny exposition. ‘Noticeably more oaked than their villages St-Aubin, but the fruit clarity keeps up, delivering the most gorgeously complex and concentrated palate. Utterly delicious, with a marine, stony complexity on the finish. Loads of length and concentration. Brilliant.’ Richard Hemming, www.jancisrobinson.com 22nd January 2019

One of St Aubin’s finest vineyards, ‘around the corner’ from the Montrachet grand crus, excellent aspect and slope and very little topsoil, 80% limestone.

Chassagne Les Houillères2017
Just 20% new oak here. A high slope vineyard with poor soils known for racy wines, La Garenne seems to be coming into its own with warmer harvests. Very classic nose of white peach and blossom. Taut and nicely bound, super concentration, weightless and effortless as it flows across the palate. Peachy fruit, a suggestion of creaminess, before the tense drive reasserts itself and finishes with a fine mineral line. Excellent value, this is a classic Puligny.
