A late disgorgement of the first Classic Cuvée blend to be made on our vineyard. The 2011 harvest, coming just two years after planting our vineyard in 2009, was only made possible by the use of high-graft vines.

All Langham Estate wines are made using grapes grown at our single site in rural Dorset. The Crawthorne vineyard consists of 12 hectares planted solely with the classic Champagne varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The site was carefully selected for its south facing slope and free-draining chalk subsoil. A long growing season and considerate viticulture ensures we harvest the finest grapes possible.
After harvest, the grapes were pressed with only the ‘cuvée,’ the first press yielding the most delicate, purest juice, retained. The base wines were fermented in a combination of used oak and stainless steel tanks, then aged for five months. After blending and bottling, the wine has spent ten years on the lees before disgorgement in 2022.
Luxurious on the nose, with rich notes of caramelised brioche, baked apple and ripe peach. The palate is finely balanced, broad and creamy in texture with lively acidity and a clean, dry finish.
