ABV 12%

Another exquisite wine by this fantastic English estate. Based on the 2019 vintage this smells like a plate of buttered toast in an English country garden and tastes of soft red apples, toasted hazelnuts and lemon shortbread. Langham is once again doing our little green isle proud. L&S (Mar 2022)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Our friends at Langham have really dug down into the detail of their vineyards to create a couple of fascinating new cuvées. This is the Culver and it promotes the Pinots (66% Noir & 24% Meunier) and as a result you get a fuller red fruit aspect. Wild flowers, hawthorn, cherry and wild strawberry, but still with a bright ripe citrus acidity. It fills the mouth with flavour but never overwhelms, it would be a great match for lobster, trout and scallops. 10% Chardonnay makes up the blend, mostly from the 2017 vintage.L&S (Apr 2020)

Langham was one of the standout estates at this year’s WineGB tasting. Tommy Grimshaw crafts beautifully textured wines and this cuvée is no exception: bright and elegant, with a hint of wild flowers and apple.Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Oct 2021)

Beautifully crafted Dorset fizz, 55 per cent pinot noir, which shows in the raspberry aroma, and layers of red apple and black cherry ice cream. Tiny satin-like bubbles and crisp acidity on the finish. And for such quality, £27.50 is actually very good value.Susy Atkins, The Telegraph (Jul 2021)

Langham Estate

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.

Vineyard manager Olly Whitfield tends the 'holy trinity' of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, with different vine management techniques for each variety. This maximises the benefits of the south facing aspect and chalk heavy soils that results in wines with great structure and finesse.

In the cellar, head winemaker Tommy Grimshaw utilizes a variety of ex Burgundy, Bordeaux and Champagne barrels – along with stainless steel to give as many blending fragments as possible, which are separated by press load. Each fragment of base wine goes through spontaneous, wild fermentation and none are fined or filtered. Creating complex and interesting base wines is at the heart of what Langham Estate does, reducing reliance on longer lees aging and bringing wines to the market earlier at a competitive cost price.

The results are impressive - this super wine represents unusually good value for the immense quality.
