Langlet Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Extra-Brut Bouteille Blanche - Champagne, France
The Winemaker “A pale colour with very fine bubbles. Grapefruit and passion fruit notes are revealed in a discreet aroma. This very mineral wine is extremely vibrant. Its final leads on to more robust aromas. An energetic vintage to wake up the tastebuds ... at brunchtime!”
Gold Medal Wine Club "...from France’s esteemed Champagne Langlet, a progressive and ultra-modern new Champagne house located in the village of Gland on the right bank of France’s Marne Valley."

Langlet champagne is produced from the chalky vineyards between renowned Château Thierry and Epernay in the region of Champagne, France.
Champagne is the most iconic sparkling wine in the world, produced in the region of Champagne in France. Synonymous with celebration, champagne is typically produced from a few specific varieties of grapes: pinot noir, chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. With effervescent flavours of citrus, almond, and apple, champagne comes in varying levels of sweetness and has a moderate amount of alcohol. The most treasured Champagnes age for a minimum of 3 years.
The Champagne region lies at the northern edge of the world's vineyard-growing areas, with lower average temperatures than any other French wine region. In this kind of cool climate, the growing season is rarely warm enough to ripen grapes to the levels required for standard winemaking. Even in temperate years, Champagne's grapes still bear the hallmark acidity of a marginal climate, and it was only the discovery of secondary fermentation that provided a wine style capable of harnessing – and even embracing – this tartness.
