Estate

Located in the Cabanac-Villagrains commune, within the La Brede canton, Chateau Langlet is one of the oldest vineyards of the Graves region. It was first mentioned in wine literature over 140 years ago, in the 1868 edition of “Bordeaux et Ses Vins”, published by Féret, for both its red and white wines. Château Langlet was purchased in 1999 by the Kressman family, owners of the renowned Chateau Latour-Martillac in Pessac Leognan. A boutique property with a planted surface of 5.1 hectares, Chateau Langlet employs traditional cultivation and vinification methods to produce excellent wines. The wine consultant s head of the faculty at the Bordeaux University School of Oenology, Professor Denis Dubourdieu, who is considered one of the greatest white wine makers alive today. Production of the white graves is limited as only 0.6 hectares are planted with sauvignon blanc.

Tasting Notes

Nice pale straw-like yellow with golden highlights. Crisp, powerful, intensely fruity nose with aromas of citrus fruits, white peaches, and pineapple. Fresh on the palate. A round, ample wine with good structure and balance; flavors of white fruits. The oak gives good structure, but is not overwhelming. Nice long finish. Overall, an elegant and highly refined wine. An excellent Graves in its price range.
