The Sancerre vineyard of de Thauvenay is owned by Langlois Chateau. It was created in 1912 by Edouard Langlois and his wife Jeanne Chateau, with the help of the Baron de Bodman.
The Chateau sits on a 18 hectare vineyard surrounding one of the rare castles in Sancerre, in Thauvenay (south east of the Appellation).Facing the Loire, the vineyard on chalky soil. With aromas of apple, mango and grapefruit this wine develops strength and character while in the glass.
The flint soil of the estate shows in this mineral-textured wine. Its hard edge will soften over the next few months into a richly patterned wine. The intense acidity also needs to calm down before this ripe wine is ready to drink. Wait until mid-2020. Rating: 90 Points; Roger Voss; Wine Enthusiast
