We’re delighted to announce the addition of a brand new cuvée to our range in time for Christmas – Langham Blanc de Noirs 2013!
Rich gold in colour with a stream of fine bubbles, the wine is a harmonious blend of 58% Pinot noir and 42% Pinot meunier. The nose of Langham Blanc de Noirs 2013 is alive with red fruit, violet and brioche aromas. These flavours are joined by citrus fruit on the palate and complemented by the complexity derived from 40 months lees ageing.
Our decision to produce a Blanc de Noirs followed a successful Pinot noir and Pinot meunier harvest in 2013. The grapes, both black varieties, were picked from 11th-24th October 2013 and after fermentation the wine was left to age on its lees for six months before being bottled. Secondary fermentation in the bottle has resulted in a beautiful fine stream of bubbles!
We feel our Blanc de Noirs 2013 is a wine suited to all occasions and it certainly drinks equally well on its own or with food. If you’re looking for something special to toast the festivities this season it’s perfect to drink now. However if you’re buying as a gift or to lay down in your cellar, our winemaker Daniel recommends that you age for up to three years.
