2001 Quadrille, Langlois-Chateau


 To celebrate Jim's Loire notching up 100,000 visits we opened a bottle of 2001 Quadrille from Langlois-Chateau. This is Langlois-Chateau's top Crémant de Loire and we were kindly given a bottle of the 2001 to take away following the vins clair tasting and dinner at St Hilaire-St Florent at the beginning of February during the Salon des Vins de Loire. 

This is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet and and Cabernet Sauvignon and it spends more than four years on its lees in Langlois' cellars. It is the long aging that gives Quadrille its attractive rich, toasty, brioche character that is nicely off-set by good acidity and length.

Bob. Much as you enjoyed the Carmin I think Quadrille is finer!
