About the Domaine
This small family run Champagne house just south of Epernay produces a wonderful blanc de noirs blend, with an equal balance of Champagne’s two black grapes, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. These two grapes combine their characteristics of weight, and ability to age, with a softer fruit style. Apart from careful winemaking the secret here is the wine is aged for at least 3 years before release which allows the cuvée to develop its fresh lightly biscuit aroma and fully flavoured palate.
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.
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.
