Langlois Chateau Cremant de Loire Brut

Langlois Chateau Cremant de Loire Brut

We drink a fair amount of bubbly wine at our house.  It just goes with anything, any meal, anybody.  Long time readers know that we love the Kirkland Champagne for $19.99.  That’s real French Champagne at an almost unheard of price.

We were excited to see another French bubbly hit our Costco stores, this time from the Loire Valley, of which we are also big fans.  The price was right at $15.99, compared to a retail price closer to $23.

I always gravitate toward these French Cremants when looking for values in sparkling wine.  Prosecco can be nice from time to time, but can also get a little bland and boring after a while.  French Cremants are a few bucks more, but typically bring a nice bump in quality.  I particularly like the ones from Loire.

This wine is an interesting blend (very Loire) of Chenin (60%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Chardonnay (20%).  A fun fact I discovered is that Langlois Chateau is owned by Bollinger of Champagne fame. Wine Enthusiast also gave the bottle 90 points.

The wine pours a pale yellow to straw in the glass with a little mineral and citrus fruit on the nose; mostly pear, sour green apple, with a little white peach flavor. Delicate in the mouth, nice effervescence. Finishes crisp, a super solid bubbly for the price.

We are going to match the 90 point that we gave the Kirkland Champagne on our last tasting of it.  Both are superb sparkling wines, and depending on the mood, I’d be very happy with either one. Rating: 90 points (a CostcoWine Top Pick)

Well, sorry, but isn’t the first time. Your reviews never available on my Costco in Clearwater Florida.

Please finish this thought "but can also get a little [ ] and boring". I was thinking along those lines as I put two bottles of KS Prosecco in with one bottle of KS Champagne, and was wondering if there was something like this a few bucks cheaper out there. This wine was not available in Indy today; hopefully next time. Thank you for all you to with this wonderful website.

Hi Eric. The word missing was supposed to be “bland”. Not sure how that got removed but I’ll update. Thanks for writing in. Hope you find it next time.
