WINE REVIEW

The latest Classic Cuvée release from Langham is a blend of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier. A portion of the wine has gone through malolactic fermentation and 6 months lees aging, prior to a further 24 months on lees in the bottle.

Quite different on the nose to the BdB, with a fresher citrus focus, peach aromas but then some distinctive red notes too.

Starting with rich racy acidity, this again has that crisp green fresh picked English apple quality – but with a bit more citrus potency.

Great texture, though evidently youthful in character it should get better with another year or two in the bottle.
