WINE REVIEW

A wine that just missed out on our Blanc de Noirs feature last month, the H&H is a blend of 68% Pinot Noir and 35% Pinot Meunier that spent 3 years on lees and currently 6 months under cork prior to tasting.

This wine has a huge presence; it’s confident and boisterous with a huge punchy acidity up front, but enough depth and weight to match. After an intense citrus bite, a broad, rich biscuit and concentrated stone fruit mid-taste develops.

It was great to taste this side by side with the Langham Blanc de Noirs; the H&H being ballsy and confident, whilst the Langham demure and restrained with hidden depths. Both, however, are fantastic wines and further demonstrate the diversity of English Blanc de Noirs.
