2013 Blanc de Noirs Brut English Sparkling Wine
|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier|
|Origin||United Kingdom, English Sparkling Wine|
|Classification||English Sparkling Wine|
This has a gorgeously rich colour - an almost rose gold shade to it and is peppered with a very fine line of tiny bubbles in the glass. The nose has a full on rich whiff of cream and baking brioche. The palate is loaded with gorgeously rounded strawberries, some cream and a full compliment of weighty hedgerow blossom, cow-parsley too. A delicious, intense champagne that you just want to drink. We first tasted this after 2 big name champagnes (non vintage) each over the £50 mark - we unanimously all decided the 2013 vintage Langham was the most drinkable - and is a real bargain at less than £30! L&S (Jul 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Langham estate is proudly independent and grow all their own grapes giving them total control and the ability to produce exactly the wines they want. With a south-facing aspect, chalk soils and a unique micro-climate, Langham's 'Crawthorne' Vineyard provides the perfect terroir for ripening the classic Champagne varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The viticulture here is the latest development in agriculture at this historic, farming estate with established hedgerows and mature woodland providing natural wind breaks and habitat for a large variety of beneficial organisms. This great Vineyard potential was identified by John Langham and now under his son Justin the work is being intensified and the number of vines has increased to more than 30 acres. They work with a low-intervention approach to both grape growing and wine production, constantly striving to minimise our environmental impact and produce honest wines that reflect their Dorset terroir. All grapes are handpicked, and rigorous vineyard selection ensures only the highest quality grapes arrive at the winery. The results are impressive - this super wine is the newest English sparkler to join our list and represents unusually good value for the immense quality.
