Château Langoiran carries the name as the municipality in which it is located, 25 kilometers at the south east of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Garonne River. Château Langoiran wines benefit from a particularly meticulous vinification as well as an optimum ageing in French oak barrels in the underground cellar dated from the 17th century . Today, the Château Langoiran’s cellar is opened to public for daily visits. Its underground cellar, the particularity of the Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux terroir, the history of the region and the beautiful landscapes are good reasons to come and discover the wine-making philosophy of the Gonfrier family.
