We’re delighted to be celebrating again this year, this time in the 2018 Sommelier Wine Awards (SWA) with a Gold for our Classic Cuvée 2014.
Classic Cuvee 2014

Langham Classic Cuvée 2014 was described as ‘Lovely by the glass and good value,’ by Matthieu Longuère MS of Le Cordon Bleu London, noting its ‘floral, nutty, fruity and elegant nose, and friendly, fresh and quite juicy palate’. The Don’s Carlos Ferreira said it was ‘a bit spicy with red apple, oak and stone fruits, good balance and finishing long and creamy’. SWA judges team leader Martin Lam found it ‘very distinctive, with a creamy, almost honeyed nose, and quite high acidity’.

Considering the calibre of judges involved in the SWA we are very proud to have our Classic Cuvée 2014 so well-received. The judges’ glowing comments are testament to the dedication and passion of our small team for producing world-class sparkling wines from our single-vineyard Dorset estate.

Langham Classic Cuvée 2014 is available from Marks and Spencer at £25 or direct from our Tasting Room or website. Come and try before you buy; we’re open 10pm-4pm Wednesday to Saturday throughout the rest of the month of May but check our contact page for up-to-date opening hours.

Langham Fizz Friday with Lesley Waters

test
On the first Friday of every month we host Fizz Friday here at the winery. For May’s event we had wonderful Dorset chef Lesley Waters introducing her Spring menu, all accompanied by Langham sparkling wines!
Guests began with a mixed platter starter served with freshly baked bread, butternut hummus, marinated feta and dukka, chorizo ragout. This was followed by Spring lamb koftas with smokey Puy lentil salad, caramelised roasted peppers and red onions served with a side of wild garlic aioli, whereas vegetarians were treated to marinated vegetable kebabs served with a baby spinach, lemon and wild garlic salad.

Dessert was a sumptuous-but-fresh Spanish orange honey cake served with Catalan cream and everyone was able to choose two glasses of any of our Langham cuvées to accompany the meal.

We were delighted to have a full tasting room for the evening, experiencing Lesley’s lively patter and exclusive preview to her menus of the season. It was a delicious and exclusive evening in our rustic tasting room, stay tuned for future culinary events here at Langham Wine Estate!

Our next Fizz Friday is on the 1st of June co-hosted by Summer Lodge chef Steven Titman who’ll be serving a four-course menu paired with a selection of Langham cuvées. Click here for details.
