Situated on the right bank of the Loire River in the Central Vineyards area, the Langoux family own 18 hectares of vines. 17.5 hectares are dedicated to Sauvignon Blanc for the production of Pouilly-Fumé whilst 0.5 hectares produce Chasselas. The soil is varied with Kimmeridgian limestone, clay and flint. This diversity creates parcels of vines with individual characteristics, all of which lend depth and concentration to the blend. In particular, the typical Pouilly-Fumé “gunflint” profile becomes apparent. In 1895, Jean-Louis Langoux was a cooper at Petit Soumard and decided to produce wine from their few vines. By 1963, there were 2.5 hectares under vine and Jean-Louis’ grandson, Marcel decided to focus the estate entirely on viticulture. Following Marcel’s death in 1995, the business is now managed by his sons Thierry and Emmanuel under the watchful eyes of their mother, Monique. Over the generations, the techniques and viticultural practices have been passed down and improved, but the family still remain close to the core values established in the late 19th century.
