In 1982, Bernard Leroux produced the first vintage of the wine which was to be the Domaine Langlois-Chateau red and white. Since then, and as a result of the success that it has had, Langlois-Chateau has incresed its vineyard holding in the Saumur area and consistantly increased the quality of the wines.This wine is produced with fruit from the Coudray-Macouard and St-Florent vineyards (a total of 20 hectares). Following the harvest, the grapes were totally destemmed and then maceration took place for 15 days. Fermentation was undertaken in tanks at controlled a temperature.
