    November 30, 2013 - Sunset Corners Champagne Tasting (Miami, FL): Very standard grocery store, just OK, sparkling wine

    April 15, 2013 - (Deals/Genka Gastronomy Fair, Sparkling wines Masterclass, Intercontinental Hotel) A bottle with 100% Cab. Franc.
    Nice aromas of ripe red fruits with some flower notes as well. Beautiful in the palate as well, nice acidity, balanced with fresh red fruits too, creamy texture from bubbles that lasts, medium aftertaste. A sparkling for for but also to have by the glass. Nice

    December 24, 2012 - Un peu trop doux à mon goût mais quand même agréable, belles bulles assez fines.

    August 3, 2012 - Acheté en même temps que la même bouteille dégustée en Décembre 2010. Même livraison, 19 mois de bouteille plus tard. Nous sommes confondus!
    Cabernet franc 100%, 12,5% d'alcool, métrode traditionnelle
    Œil : rose saumonné, bulles de taille moyenne-fine, abondantes, persistantes, bonne prise de mousse mais éphémère
    Nez : projection d'intensité moyenne, délicat, frais, pointe brioché, touche de levure, un rien végétal, canneberges séchées, fraise, petit quelque chose qui rappelle les agrumes, touche florale, minérale, crayeux, intéressant, il nous semble par ailleurs beaucoup plus complet et agréable au nez qu'en 2010
    Bouche : plutôt sec, effervescence qui emplie la bouche intensément sans être explosive, frais, persistence moyenne, très bien fait, rétro sur la prune, le noyau de prune et la canneberge, amertume modérée, intéressant
    Conclusion : très intéressant (cabernet franc) et presque excitant, fort différent de l'autre bouteille 19 mois plus tôt, comme s'il avait connu une évolution favorable en bouteille, le portant à un meilleur niveau, mieux intégré, plus complet. Beaucoup de plaisir ici!! 88+

    June 9, 2012 - Slightly yeasty on the nose it shows hints of berries but very subtle. Nice palate, refreshing, with hints of red berries.

    (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.
