Two lovely sparkling wines from Langham, Dorset


Two lovely sparkling wines from Langham, Dorset


Very impressed with these English sparkling wines, from chalky soils in Dorset.

Langham Rosé 2014 Dorset, England
12% alcohol. From Cretaceous chalk soils in Dorset, this is a blend of the classic Champagne varieties. It’s an attractive light pink colour, and shows taut, compact cherry and citrus fruit with a hint of red apple and just a trace of creaminess. Lovely balance and texture here: a really refined, expressive sparkling rosé. So pure and harmonious. 92/100 (£26 Marks & Spencer)

Langham Classic Cuvée 2014 Dorset, England
12% alcohol. Hailing from Dorset, this English fizz is made from the three classic Champagne varieties grown on chalky soil. It’s rich and fruit-driven with ripe pear, apple and citrus fruit and really well integrated acidity. There’s a hint of brioche/toast, too, adding interest. It’s really delicious in a ripe style. 90/100 (£24 Marks & Spencer)
