1 x Langlet Brut Grande Réserve - Champagne, France

Sommeliers International "...delicate, fine, aromatic, a touch of fruit compote. Fresh. Palate; generous. Maturity; freshness in the finish."

Dirk Schram "The entire Maison Langlet philosophy is reflected in this champagne. Light golden yellow in colour with an even, fine bubble. Flowers and exotic scents predominate in the aroma. In terms of taste, great aromatic finesse and a hint of citrus fruits follow. This is the perfect cuvée for an aperitif!"

The Winemaker “A pale gold colour with tiny, regular bubbles. Floral and exotic notes stand out in the aroma. The taste offers a wonderful aromatic finesse and a final zest of citrus. The perfect cuvée for an aperitif!”

45% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay; 20% Pinot Meunierx

Sommeliers International "...on many fine tables in Paris.

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."

Sommeiliers International "The Langlet Champagnes are an original adventure, that of three friends, native from wine grower families of Champagne. You have Vincent Métivier, the man in the vineyard....who continuously studies his land, not yet organically farmed but with a permanent concern for nature (integrated farming, limited treatments, grass cover between the rows …); Luc Chaudon who runs a trade house whose vineyard in the Moutain of Reims mainly consist of Grand Crus and First Crus; and Frédéric Papelard, ambassador of the brand, to who we owe to find Champagne Langlet on many fine tables in Paris. “Moreish, natural, terroir driven wines…Today I supply some 400 restaurants in Paris." The range comprises 7 cuvées .... from the house’s Brut with its notes of plum and wild cherry to the Extra Brut aged in oak barrels “with aromas of roasted pine nuts and lavender honey in the finish, to be served over “an oven-baked lamb loin with rosemary” according to Best Sommelier of the World Gerard Basset."

Les Cave Des Guards "Champagne Langlet is a resolutely modern product. It is first and foremost the story of a meeting. That of Vincent Metiver, a winegrower who, between Château-Thierry and Épernay, has set up his press in the middle of the chalky plots of the vines that make up Champagne Langlet. A man who certainly learned from his elders the precise accomplishment of each stage of wine making. But who has also been able to develop the practice with “just what is needed” to protect champagne from solid organoleptic qualities, without altering the soil, the plant, or the fruit and even less the quality of the product. A product which is ultimately judiciously reasoned, harmoniously structured and originally defined. That of Luc Chaudron, an owner whose vineyard located on the Montagne de Reims consists mainly of Grand Crus and Premiers Crus. Luc is the one who oversees production including the bottles engraved with the names of the clients, decorated by renowned artists for limited editions. All champagnes are treated with a precision that makes the singular Langlet cuvées exceptional products. And then Frederic Papelard. This alliance required an esthete, plenipotentiary emissary of this new Champagne. Ambassador of the brand, with a friendly and generous openness, he brings Champagne Langlet to the sanction of the connoisseur market.

These three men, all three winegrowers and owners of their vines, are at the origin of Langlet Champagnes. They made it a product assembled in a subtle way, consensual and open to others: the friend, the artist, the poet, the one who wants the agape to be remembered ... A product that is quick to satisfy all those who, greedily, know how to decode its identity. This lineage is not the only singularity of Langlet Champagnes. “You have to be resolutely modern” said Rimbault, this is Champagne Langlet, mobile, evolving, progressive, irremediably part of the trends of its time. The huge kitchen set up in the middle of the cellar, in Gland, testifies to this desire to share the taste of celebration that we know is concentrated in these bottles."

Langlet Champagne are an award winning new French Champagne producer. Their “exceptional” 2009 Vintage Extra Brut Champagne was awarded a gold medal by the Beverage Tasting Insitute. An alliance of three accomplished French winemakers and friends - Vincent Metiver, Luc Chaudron known for his grand crus and premier crus, and Frederic Papelard. Langlet champagne is produced from the chalky vineyards between renowned Château Thierry and Epernay in the region of Champagne, France.

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.

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.

'Best Value Winery' ~ James Halliday

James Halliday 5 Red Star Winery

James Halliday "...The palate has a juicy, almost sherbet-like, intensity... it also has a startling precision and length, fruit, rather than artefact, paramount....Cool/dry conditions resulted in low crops with small bunches, night-harvested, gently destemmed, cool-fermented with wild yeast. "

James Halliday "The range and quality of his wines are extraordinary, the prices irresistible." (2013 vintage)

Larry Cherubino has had a distinguished winemaking career, first at Hardys Tintara, then Houghton, and thereafter as consultant/Flying Winemaker in Australia, NZ, South Africa, the US and Italy. All the wines Cherubino produces are single region wines. The runaway success of the business has seen the accumulation of 120ha of vineyards, the appointment of additional winemakers, and Larry's own appointment as Director of Winemaking for Robert Oatley Vineyards.

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Bolder, richer, full-bodied and buttery Chardonnays are made using oak and are produced in California, Burgundy, and Australia. Unoaked chardonnays such as Chablis and those produced in Chile, New Zealand, and other parts of France are leaner and often crisp and mineraly, with delicate flavors. By law, if a label says “Chablis,” it must be Chardonnay.

James Halliday Top Ten ~ Best New Wineries 2015 (2016 vintage)
#6 Top Wineries of Australia 2020 ~ The Real Review

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "The colour is pale, the bouquet intense and bright in flowery aromas without yeastiness, hints of frangipani, star jasmine and apple turnover, the palate likewise super-intense and nicely dry, with seamless acidity and a long carry. Lovely now, and great potential for ageing."

Wine Pilot, Ken Garget "A fine Frankland River Riesling. Handpicked from their blocks C and D of the estate's Powderbark vineyard, the fruit was gently whole bunch pressed with a natural fermentation, after which it spent time on lees for texture and complexity.This is very pale, just a hint of a dilute yellow hue. A focused and yet powerful style, with a minerally/chalky backing. Attractive citrus notes, most notably grapefruits and a touch of lime. Attractive florals. This is still very young and probably needs at least a decade to really hit its straps, when it should really blossom into something special. There is sappy acidity and a hint of a saline note all adding to the complexity on offer. A fine, tight, fresh Riesling with serious length. You'll surely enjoy it now, but even more so if you can give it time"

James Suckling "A tightly-wound wine that needs a moment for the nose to open up. Vibrant kumquat and mandarin orange aromas with a touch of basil. Sleek, crisp and focused with tons of stony energy driving the long, precise finish."

The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson "Distinctive. Cooked apple, ginger, cider-like notes and then citrus. It’s not broad or even bodied but it has a spread to it, a settle. The flavours come as a sheet rather than as a dart. It works a treat. It’s a lovely wine to drink."

Waters Wine "Gosh, a real step up in intensity from the 2021. Very complex aromatics of salted citrus, lime peel, spring jasmine, grapefruit, orange blossom and spiced apple. Rich and concentrated, extremely powerful, super intense, salty, pithy, textural and precise. Compact and coiled in 2022, requiring a few years to unwind and flesh out. Promises to be very long lived, and one of the best ever released. "

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Hand-picked fruit from the Powderbark vineyard, whole-bunch pressed, wild ferment in stainless steel, then rested on lees prior to bottling. This is an incredibly structured and austere riesling, but that is what we know, love and expect from Frankland River; the wines live long, owing to the prodigious acidity. The pithy fruit unfurls and evolves over time. Pure, precise and focused. Cellar this for the medium term and drink the 2020 while you wait." (2021 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Very light, bright-yellow colour. The aroma is bright and clean, fresh and vibrant, fresh-cut flowers, while the palate is similarly bright and alive, intense and fresh, with pleasing dryness that leaves a clean, savoury aftertaste. Concentrated fruit evident. Good persistence, a slight grip aiding the cleansing properties. " (2021 vintage)

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Fruit from the Powderbark vineyard. Whole-bunch pressed, stainless-steel ferment, on lees for 4 months. This has all the austere acidity that makes Frankland River riesling what it is, but it comes with a plump fruit profile that gives it a richness and almost an opulence. Lychee, lime, green apple and talc. The acidity has a zing and a pop and finishes with a crunch of sea salt." (2020 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Very light, bright-yellow colour. The aroma is bright and clean, fresh and vibrant, fresh-cut flowers, while the palate is similarly bright and alive, intense and fresh, with pleasing dryness that leaves a clean, savoury aftertaste. Concentrated fruit evident. Good persistence, a slight grip aiding the cleansing properties. " (2020 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Pale green-yellow hue, the bouquet exceptionally fragrant, with high-toned citrus pith and citrus juice aromatics. A suggestion of gardenia. The wine is superbly intense and refined, mouth-watering acidity cleansing the finish beautifully. There is a faint trace of grip and the wine is remarkarbly juicy despite having no residual sugar. A beautiful young riesling with a bright future." (2019 vintage)

Young Gun of Wine, Australian Vineyard of The Year 2020 "The Swinney vineyard represents modern viticulture interwoven with Old-World techniques, executed with precision through a combination of exhaustive manual work and state-of-the-art technology, and all underpinned by an environmental focus...and the quality of the resulting wines, is truly extraordinary and inspiring.”

The Swinneys are a pair of brother-and-sister winemakers who are one of the rare new Australian wineries to have two of their wines invited onto the esteemed wine lists of The Ivy and Savoy Grill (Gordon Ramsay) restaurants in London. Swinney Vineyards made its debut in Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2015 with a five-star rating and were ranked in the top ten of best new wineries.
