September 24, 2016 - Appealing bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, citrus spritz, and minerals. Lush and substantive, a touch meaty, great acid, mouth-puckering finish.
July 19, 2016 - Medium minus nose shows strawberry, light general floral note. Palate is dry, full bodied in structure for a sparkling. Simple fruit notes.

March 14, 2016 - A lot of fun. Someone said this was Cab Franc? Really? Gasp! I'm surprised. It's got strong cherry, strawberry, and honeydew notes to it. Very fruity with a soft sweetness that's really quite pleasant.

February 11, 2016 - Pale salmon. Medium intensity on the nose, but the aromas are pleasant and precise reminding red fruits like strawberry, stone fruits (fresh peach), citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and green fruits like red apple. Some yeastiness and a stony-like minerality are perceivable.
I like the elegance on the palate, where it shows creamy bubbles, medium body and crispy acidity. The lemon and grapefruit flavours have a good persistence, leaving a very pleasant aftertaste.

(NV Langlois-Chateau Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé) This is 100% Cabernet Franc, the fruit left in the press overnight to impart colour to the must, then after fermentation in bottle it is left on its lees for 18 months. A vibrant salmon-pink hue, vivacious style, good substance too. Bright and vigorous mousse. Fresh and appealing. Good.

(NV Langlois-Chateau Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé) Purchased July 2007. Richly coloured, salmon-pink. Stony, redcurrant, strawberry and cream nose. A little herb and leaf, but subtle. Firm palate, lots of substance, firm and incisive mousse, lively acidity, but even a little grip through the finish. This has certainly fleshed out a little when compared with my tasting note from last year, as it has a much rounded, flashier feel to the palate, although still plenty of firm grip. Very enjoyable aperitif on a warm, Sunday afternoon.

(NV Langlois-Chateau Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé) Current release, tasted at the domaine. An attractive, very pale pink hue. There is admittedly not much to be found on the nose here save for some redcurrant leaf, but the fruit seems a little more obvious on the palate where it has a nice vanilla-tinged strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant character with a nettly prickle. The mousse is rather gentle but creamy, perhaps more pétillant than mousseux. Clean and attractive, with a hard, perhaps slightly metallic core, but I like this wine. A second bottle within a week or two was the same.
